The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has appointed Tim Irish to lead its board during the final stages of their search for a new Chief Executive.
Mr Irish will hold the role for three months, or will step down sooner if a permanent chair is appointed during that time.
According to the Health Service Journal:
“Mr Irish will lead the search for a new chief executive officer for NICE. Founding chief executive Sir Andrew Dillon is due to leave his post in March after more than two decades at the organisation.”
It is understood that NICE is nearing the end of its search for a new Chief Executive. Deputy Chief Executive Gillian Leng will be asked to act in the role until the position is filled.
