The judges are asked to assess the ”quantity” of power and influence an individual has – rather than whether or not it will be used for good or ill. The aim is also to hold up a mirror to healthcare influence as it actually is, however ugly or pretty that image may be. The aim is not to be “balanced”’ or “representative” – just as accurate as possible.

The prime minister and chancellor are excluded from consideration.

This year’s HSJ100 judges were:

  • Dr Mike Bewick, former deputy medical director, NHS England
  • Alistair Birt MP, former Conservative health minister
  • Peter Carter, former chief executive, Royal College of Nursing
  • Richard Douglas, former finance director, Department of Health
  • Helen Buckingham, executive director of corporate affairs, Monitor
  • Dame Barbara Hakin, former deputy chief executive, NHS England
  • Professor Neena Modi, president, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
  • Dame Gill Morgan, chair, NHS providers
  • Sir Keith Person, chair, Health Education England
  • Simon Potts, head of health, Veredus
  • Don Redding, director of policy, National Voices
  • Jon Restell, chief executive, Managers in Partnership
  • Annette Sergeant, director, Veredus
  • Dr Geraldine Strathdee, former national director for mental health, NHS England

The judging was chaired by HSJ editor Alastair McLellan.
