NHS Digital - the national information and technology provider for England’s health and care system – has appointed Sarah Wilkinson from the Home Office as its new CEO. Sarah, who is currently Chief Digital, Data and Technology Officer at the Home Office, will join NHS Digital ‘later this year’. Until then, Rob Shaw will continue as interim CEO, a role he took after the retirement of former CEO Andy Williams at the end of March.
Sarah’s appointment as NHS Digital CEO looks set to bring fresh energy and insight to the public sector organisation, which has an important role to play in empowering the health and care system through digital transformation. Sarah joined the Home Office at the beginning of 2015 to lead the transformation of the department’s IT capabilities. Although Sarah is new to the healthcare sector, she has a strong track record in technology and change having begun her career in the finance sector with senior roles at Lehman Brothers, Deutsche Bank, UBS, HSBC and most recently Credit Suisse. This experience of implementing complex digital projects and bringing about change through digital delivery should stand her in good stead at NHS Digital, which will need strong leadership as the NHS battles to transform despite mounting pressures (see UK Public Sector SITS Market Trends & Forecasts).
