Chief executive, University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust (New entry)
In addition to running UHB, Julie Moore leads the Future Forum’s education and training work. This is one of the least developed areas of policy but one that commands a significant proportion of the NHS budget. The former nurse therefore has the power to exercise considerable influence over the care people will receive in future, as well as the value for money the service provides. Her position and no-nonsense reputation give her considerable clout. If she uses that to sway decisions on the training funding envelope, the allocations formula and more nitty-gritty clinical education issues, she will make a lasting impact.
