Mark Taylor, vice-chair of NICE has stepped down and taken up a new role as chair of an NHS Mental Health Trust

Mark Taylor, vice-chair of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has stepped down and taken up a new role as chair of an NHS Mental Health Trust.

Taylor, who has been vice-chair to Sir Michael Rawlins since 2003 has been appointed chairman at Devon Partnership NHS Trust. Commenting on his new role, he said: "My six years at NICE have been among the most satisfying of my professional life. This is not least because the friendliness, dedication and ability of colleagues across the Institute has made working with them an absolute pleasure. NICE is an extraordinary organisation with which I am proud to have been associated and which I know will go from strength to strength."

Sir Michael said: "I congratulate Mark on his new appointment, and would like to thank him on behalf of NICE for his hard work and commitment in helping steer NICE through the many challenges that the Institute has faced. I've valued his support over the last six years, and wish him well in his new post."
