In our top story this week, senior government sources tell PRWeek that Alex Aiken will leave the Government Communications Service this autumn.
Aiken will likely depart after overseeing the next stages of the controversial ‘Reshaping GCS’ programme he devised, which has caused frustration and anger among the 4,500 government comms staff affected.
Also this week, NHS England and Improvement has moved swiftly to replace Simon Enright, who leaves his role as director of comms later this month for new royal duties and we have the next instalment of our diary from a tranee volunteer RNLI press officer.
Enjoy this week’s bulletin and stay safe.
