Ex-NHS CIO confirmed as KPMG Oz partner

KPMG Australia has confirmed former NHS CIO is joining their Global Health Practice as a partner

KPMG
Australia
has confirmed Richard Granger, former NHS chief information
officer, will start working as a partner at their KPMG Global Health Practice in
November.

Granger, said to have been the highest paid civil servant in the UK with a
salary of £290,000 a year, led the £12.7bn national programme for IT in NHS and
Connecting for Health when the agency was created in April 2005, but resigned
from this role in June 2007 and left in February, according to CIO.

Last month, NHS eventually replaced Granger, by creating two new posts, both
advertised at £200,000 a year – chief information officer for health, taken up
by Christine Connolly, former Cadbury Schweppes CIO; and NHS head of programme
and system delivery, filled by Martin Bellamy, former Pensions Service chief
information officer.

Gordon Hextall, acting head of the national programme for IT since Granger’s
departure, is expected to stay in his post.
