NHS England boss Stevens to step down this summer
Sir Simon Stevens is to step down as head of NHS England and become a peer, the government has announced. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he had "Led the NHS with great distinction". Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Sir Simon had been "a steadfast and sage leader for our National Health Service, and that has been especially true during this most testing period in NHS history". Sir Simon first joined the NHS in 1988 through its graduate management programme before working in international health care, frontline NHS services and at 10 Downing Street, before becoming chief executive of NHS England in 2014. NHS England said a successor would be appointed before Sir Simon steps down on 31 July..
