Ex-NHS CIO is new head of BCS's Health Informatics Forum

Matthew Swindells, who led a Whitehall review of NHS informatics, is the new head of the British Computer Society’s Health Informatics Forum. He is managing director for health at consultancy Tribal and has been NHS chief information officer.

Dr Glyn Hayes had successfully chaired the BCS’s Health Informatics Forum. He led a review on NHS IT for the Tories and more recently has sat on a medical advisory board set up by iSoft, one of the NPfIT suppliers.


Swindells said: “This is a crucial time for informatics and the NHS as a whole. I am looking forward to being a proactive ambassador for all branches of health informatics and BCS HIF; promoting its activities and building confidence in the ability of informatics to contribute to improving our health system.”

Swindells was formerly head of IT at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital and chief executive at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
