Mr Simon Dukes
Outgoing Chief Executive, PSNC
Simon joined PSNC in May 2018 from counter-fraud organisation CIFAS. As CEO he has been the principal advisor to the PSNC committee, responsible and accountable for all operational dimensions of the organisation. During his time at PSNC, Simon has steered the organisation and pharmacy through a critical period. This included leading the negotiations that led to the agreement of the five-year Contractual Framework deal, and driving PSNC’s ongoing work to support contractors through the COVID-19 pandemic. Other highlights have included improving relationships between PSNC and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I), and HM Government, and the initiation of an independent review of both PSNC and the LPCs, setting work in motion to realign how the LPCs and PSNC work together for the benefit of all contractors.
