Lord Philip Hunt has been appointed to chair the UK's National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA). From January 2004 he will take over from Professor Rory Shaw, who has chaired the NPSA since it was established in July 2001. An influential proponent of medical technology interests, his four-year appointment will be welcomed by the industry. His sudden resignation as health minister last March postponed the launch of the Healthcare Industries Task Force (HITF) project.
