New directorate launched to help increase efficiency in the NHS

Jeremy Marlow – who currently has responsibility for the Carter Review at the Department of Health – will be joining NHS Improvement on secondment as part of the planned transfer of responsibility for implementation.

As the new Executive Director of Operational Productivity, Dr Marlow will head a new directorate with staff made up of existing teams from both organisations. The Carter Review is an essential part of the NHS Five Year Forward View.

Prior to joining the Department of Health last year, Dr Marlow has extensive experience from across Whitehall and in the improvement of public services having worked in HM Treasury, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Ministry of Justice, Cabinet Office and the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit.    

Jim Mackey, Chief Executive of NHS Improvement said:

'I welcome Jeremy to NHS Improvement. He has extensive experience at the heart of government and working with front-line public services and will be continuing the work he has been doing at the Department of Health on the Carter Review. 

'The Carter Review offers the NHS a real opportunity to deliver the care patients want in the most efficient way possible. His team will become a real resource for the whole NHS to use.'

Jeremy Marlow said:

'I’m very pleased and excited to be given this opportunity at NHS Improvement to lead the implementation of Lord Carter’s review in to NHS operational productivity and performance. 

'Despite the fact the efficiencies and productivity improvements required are some of the biggest the NHS has ever delivered, I’m determined that they will also lead to better clinical outcomes and patient experience. From what I have seen working with health care professionals over the past year I am also confident that the dedication and commitment exists within the service to achieve it.'
