New head of Edinburgh social work to oversee restructuring

    Duncan MacAulay has been appointed interim director of social
    work for the City of Edinburgh Council, writes Maggie
    Wood.

    Formerly head of operations, MacAulay has been appointed after
    last month’s announcement that Edinburgh would undertake a complete
    restructuring of the social work department following the damning
    inquiry report into the death of baby Caleb Ness.

    An early establishment of two newly proposed departments, one
    for Education, Children and Families and one for Health and Social
    Care Services is expected, with full implementation within twelve
    months.
