Decades of insider experience of the NHS will be crucial for the work ahead Health Foundation response to the announcement of Amanda Pritchard as the new Chief Executive Officer of NHS England and NHS Improvement

28 July 2021

Responding to the appointment of Amanda Pritchard as the new Chief Executive Officer of NHS England and NHS Improvement, Dr Jennifer Dixon, Chief Executive of the Health Foundation, said:

'Many congratulations to Amanda Pritchard on her appointment. Her two decades of insider experience working in the NHS, including her role as NHS England’s Chief Operating Officer, will be absolutely crucial for the work ahead. Amanda’s proven credentials as a senior NHS leader and manager are vitally important to address record waiting lists and support an exhausted and understaffed NHS workforce.

'Amanda has a huge opportunity to build on the work of her predecessor Sir Simon Stevens whose leadership led to significant investment and a clear long term vision for the NHS. Amanda's experienced leadership will need strong government support and funding as the public clearly expect.

'We wish her every success and look forward to working with her.'
