He recently stepped down as chief inspector of hospitals

Incisive Health Prof Sir Mike RichardsUK health policy consultancy Incisive Health has recruited the UK’s former chief inspector of hospitals Prof Sir Mike Richards as senior counsel to bolster its advisory team.

In his most recent role Sir Mike led the inspection, quality and safety agenda for hospitals and prior to that he served in senior clinical roles at NHS England and the Department of Health, including as national clinical director for cancer for over a decade.

Mike Birtwistle, one of Incisive Health’s founding partners, said: “Mike’s impact on improving clinical quality and health outcomes is second to none. His work has benefitted millions. Mike’s commitment to patients, his collaborative style and desire to deliver change makes him the perfect addition to our team.”

A former hospital physician, Sir Mike led the development and implementation of the NHS Cancer Plan in 2000, the Cancer Reform Strategy in 2008 and Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer in 2011.

In July 2012 he was appointed as Director for Reducing Premature Mortality on the NHS Commissioning Board (now NHS England), where he led the development of a cardiovascular outcomes strategy.

At Incisive Health he will work alongside Richard Douglas, starting in October.

Sir Mike said: "I have always been impressed by the quality of Incisive Health's insight and advice and their ability to deliver results which make a difference for patients, the NHS and their clients.

“The team understands what drives change in health and they know how to bring people together. These are vital attributes if the NHS is to navigate the tough financial climate to improve quality and deliver better outcomes.”
