NHS Direct chief executive leaving

13th November 2008

Chief executive of NHS Direct, Matt Tee, is leaving his post to take up the most senior civil service communications role.

Mr Tee, who joined last May, has been named as the next permanent secretary for government communications and will replace Howell James in the role, which has responsibility for the strategy, co-ordination and effectiveness of communication across government. His departure comes as NHS Direct dropped plans to become a foundation trust because of government reluctance to free it from central control.
