9 – Dr Michael Dixon

As chair of the NHS Alliance, Dr Michael Dixon is one of the profession's key brokers between clinicians and managers, and has striven to forge closer relationships between the two.

A huge supporter of primary care, he has regularly vented his frustrations at the dominance of the acute sector, most recently over the shake-up of community health and the failure of Lord Darzi to consult with GPs.

Dr Dixon's other key interest is complementary medicine – he is director of the Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health.
