THE region’s health authorities have merged as part of wide-ranging NHS reforms.

NHS South of England was created earlier this month and is made up of three former strategic health authorities: NHS South Central, NHS South East Coast and NHS South West. The new ‘cluster’ organisation confirmed Dr Geoff Harris as its chairman and Sir Ian Carruthers as its chief executive.
