The failing NHS's National Programme for IT is looking for two leaders to run the programme at £200,000 a head.

Richard Granger, director general for the programme left the job in January. And Connecting for Health, the body responsible for running the programme, has taken its time in finding a replacement.

It has now decided to split the director general's job into two. It has advertised for a chief information officer for health and a director of IT programme and system delivery.

The former will look at "the big picture of delivering our overall IT vision", which Granger appeared to spend most of his time on.

The current faltering delivery of usable systems will be something the second candidate will be asked to reverse.

Both jobs were advertised in the Sunday Times.
