Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The NHS's National Programme for IT is still looking for leaders following the departure of director general Richard Granger in January.

In April, the NPfIT announced it would also lose its chief information officer Matthew Swindells, who was a temporary replacement for Granger. He will leave this month. Richard Jeavons, the man in charge of service delivery, has also left.

Connecting for Health is now splitting the director general's job into two. So it is now looking for a "chief information officer for health" who will look at: "the big picture of delivering our overall IT vision". It is also looking for candidates for "director of IT programme and system delivery".

Sir Bruce Keogh is now the interim director general for informatics in place of Swindells. Keogh is keeping his previous job as national medical director.

Gordon Hextall is Keogh's deputy and keeps his current job as interim director of programme and systems delivery.

Both jobs pay about £200,000 per year and were advertised in the Sunday Times.

So why can't Connecting for Health keep anyone in these jobs?

The money seems reasonable to us. And there's two of you so there'd be someone to pass the buck to when it all goes wrong.®
