The man reponsible for leading the troubled NHS Supply Chain agency has resigned, HSJ has learned.

Jin Sahota is chief executive of Supply Chain Coordination Limited, the publicly-owned company set up to manage NHS Supply Chain. He told the board of SCCL yesterday that he is stepping down.

The news arrives alongside other changes among senior executives at SCCL and NHS Supply Chain. SCCL’s chief information officer, Howard Blackith, is also leaving the company. He will depart on 9 October to take up a post at telecoms firm Ericsson.

NHS Supply Chain denied its customer director, Stephen Foulser, had resigned. But it confirmed that he will leave at the end of his three year contract next March.

Mr Sahota’s resignation comes less than six weeks after HSJ revealed the Department of Health and Social Care and the Cabinet Office was carrying out a review of the beleaguered agency.
