The boss of London's NHS IT programme has been suspended from his job while an investigation into "certain allegations" is carried out.

David Kwo, chief information officer and regional implementation director for the NHS Connecting for Health London cluster, was suspended last Thursday. He will remain at home until the investigation has been completed.

In the meantime, Martyn Forrest, regional implementation director for the North East cluster, will be acting regional implementation director for London.

A statement from NHS Connecting for Health said: "David Kwo, regional implementation director for the NHS Connecting for Health London cluster, was suspended from duty on Thursday, 14 April to enable an investigation into certain allegations that have been received. He will remain suspended until such time as the investigation has been completed.

The suspension is not a judgement but a precautionary measure to ensure that an appropriate and fair investigation can take place, the statement said.®
