Congratulations to Professor Carl Heneghan who was selected in the top 100 most influential clinical leaders (for innovation) for the second time by the Health Service Journal at a private reception last night. He initially secured a place on the list in 2013.

The HSJ Clinical Leaders list, now in its third year, highlights those leaders whose clinical background enhances the work they do and those who have either made a significant impact on health service policy, healthcare delivery or medical/clinical advance in the last 12 months – or are likely to do so in the next 12 months.

Carl Heneghan is SPCR Lead in the Nuffield Department for Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford. He is Professor of Evidence Based Medicine, Director of the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Oxford and General Practitioner.

In the top three is Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief medical officer for England for her influence on policy, "Dame Sally can surely take some of the credit for the recent, belated appearance of mental health at the top of the political agenda. It is no coincidence that the chief medical officer’s most recent annual report, published in late 2014, focused on the longtime Cinderella service. In it, she called for more funding and much greater emphasis on mental health and wellbeing. The report also suggested the introduction of waiting time targets." (HSJ, 6 July 2015) Read more.
