Matthew Taylor, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, said: “I would like to offer my congratulations to Chris Hopson for his appointment to NHS England as its chief strategy officer.

“Chris has led NHS Providers with rigour and determination over the last ten years and has been a great advocate for the provider sector. It is encouraging that he will now take this knowledge, drive and insight with him to shape national healthcare policy.

“Chris and I have worked closely together over the last year, including around the Health and Care Act and in voicing the needs of the NHS during the heights of the pandemic. I would like to thank Chris for his support and I look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role.”
