The NHS Confederation has created a new post of medical director to lead on the organisation’s work on clinical leadership and engagement.

Professor Hugo Mascie-Taylor, formerly medical director at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, takes on the role.

NHS Confederation chief executive Steve Barnett said: ‘The development and engagement of clinical leadership in the NHS is a real priority and we are privileged to have been able to appoint one of the country’s best known medical directors to provide us with expert advice.’

Professor Mascie-Taylor’s work initially will focus on the role of clinicians in driving greater quality and efficiency and improving uptake of innovation and learning.

He said: ‘We need to ensure that clinicians and managers work together in every organisation to secure the best outcome for patients and that the medical community can play its full part in decision-making both locally and nationally.’
