HSJ has published its second celebration of healthcare’s most inspirational female leaders.

The list was announced at an event in London this evening.

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said: “The women profiled in these pages are from all levels and areas of healthcare. We have chief executives; clinicians and managers both junior and senior; and, particularly pleasing, a number of patient leaders.

“Our hope is that, once again, HSJ’s identification of the most inspiring women serves as celebration and much needed recognition for those who are making a difference in healthcare.

“Last year was the start of an important discussion. This year we continue it, in the hope that it again takes us one step closer to an NHS whose leadership truly represents its workforce and the communities it serves.”

The 50 women on the list were nominated by HSJ readers and come from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds.

A panel of judges selected the most outstanding nominees for the inaugural list, supported by the NHS Leadership Academy and NHS Employers.
