Hospital director in list of top 100 clinical leaders

Published 17/06/2013

A distinguished former nurse, who is a non-executive director of Derby Hospitals, has been named in the top100 list of the most influential clinicians in England.
Sir Stephen Moss is included in the list which has been compiled by the Health Services Journal.
During his career he has worked in a wide range of roles including Chief Nurse at the former DRI, Nurse Director, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Executive at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham. He was previously the Chairman of the Nurse Directors' Association.

He was appointed as turn-around Chair of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, where he was brought in to improve patient care and begin to restore public confidence following the highly critical report into the running of Stafford Hospital.

"I am very honoured to be included in this list, but I recognise that my achievements have been as a result of the influence and support of many people. I am proud to be a nurse and I am delighted to be part of the Board at Derby Hospitals, where my focus will be very much on supporting our staff to deliver the best care possible for our patients" said Sir Stephen.
In creating the Top 100 list, the Health Services Journal looked for clinicians influencing policy, innovation and service transformation. HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said: “The result is not just a list of people who excel in their own professional specialism but whose impact extends beyond their immediate sphere.”
In May, Sir Stephen was asked to chair a new national steering group, overseeing the launch of a pilot scheme to allow student nurses to spend time
working as healthcare assistants before taking up their nursing degrees.
