NHS England Specialised Commissioning Arrangements – acting director appointed to replace Jonathan Fielden
The Health Service Journal has reported that Jonathan Fielden, National Deputy Medical Director and Director of Specialised Commissioning is away from his NHS England role. There is limited information available at this time but the article states that they believe that Dr Fielden has been off work since January. This is very important for any companies engaged in negotiations with NHS England.
In the article, an NHS England spokesperson confirmed that John Stewart has become acting Director of Specialised Commissioning. His permanent role is Director for Strategy and Policy, Specialised Commissioning.
