in brief NSW Health chief information officer Mike Rillstone has made permanent his secondment as the chief executive of NSW Health's shared services area.

A spokesperson for NSW Health told ZDNet.com.au that Rillstone has now been appointed to the role of CEO Health Support Services. He stepped into that role in June as a six-month secondment while the department sought an executive to fill the position, which was vacant after the former chief executive John Roach became NSW Health's chief financial officer.

Deputy CIO Craig Smith has been filling Rillstone's shoes as acting CIO, leading the strategic information management branch of NSW Health. The spokesperson was unable to say whether he would be permanently appointed to the role.

Rillstone joined NSW Health in 2005 from his position of chief advisor information technology at the NZ Ministry of Health.
