    I believe that Alan Milburn in the guy in charge of Health in this country, I don't think he is in charge of the NHS specifically, but one of his responsibilities will be to watch over its progress.

    are you sure?
    cos i thought it was, but i heard he resigned or something, so it's bin a new guy for the past few months...

    The role of the permanant secretary for Health and the National Health Service chief executive were combined in 2000.

    This is a civil servant, not a politician.

    And currently that role is held by Nigel Crisp.

    Nigel Crisp is the chief executive of the NHS
    John Reid is the head of the nhs and health minister

    i think in a med school interview, if you're asked 'who is head of the nhs?' then answer John Reid

    Nigel Crisp is both Chief Executive of the NHS and Permanent Secretary for Health.

    As Danmushman said, John Reid has overall power over the NHS, and Crisp runs it for him.
