"Christopher worked with our teams to develop and establish core values, guidelines and action planning to create several new teams out of a time of massive change, all pulling in the same direction, with clarity over levels of responsibility and authority and all giving out a consistent message. Christopher worked with us to create the package of development, was responsive and insightful throughout and gave immaculate feedback.

As medical director of the local NHS hospital, I found his understanding of HR issues to be of great assistance and his open and flexible approach was much appreciated. He is an excellent communicator and decisive manager.

I should be delighted to work with Chris again in the future."

"Christopher is an extremely hard working individual who brings leadership and a sense of worth to all employees. He is a dedicated person whom strives to achieve excellence in his management skills and brings out the best in all staff at all levels. An extremely level headed person who understands the needs of the company and the individual"

"Chris is an excellent business leader - through being analytical & detailed, building a strong management team, drawing up a turnaround plan for his Hospital, and then executing successfully by engaging his customers & staff to deliver the results time and again.

Chris managed to take his hospital up the rankings within Nuffield, achieving external & internal awards along the way, to become one of the most profitable and efficient hospitals in the group, and at the same time with the highest clinical quality.
To that end, Chris became one of the lead Hospital directors in the group, advising group committees on recommendations for business and client/patient outcome improvements.

Personally, Chris has been a joy to work with, and an excellent buddy & business leader to help me achieve the results in my own Hospital. His unselfish commitment, wise counsel and support through all levels, (being staff, colleagues, or board directors), has helped the group deliver improved results throughout the Hospitals division."

"I had a number of dealings with Chris during my time at Nuffield. His commercial acumen and leadership qualities are what stand out for me most. In particular, Chris led from the front on a major Group Materials Management Project. He succeeded in mobilising his hospital staff where other hospital directors struggled - an excellent example to others in the group."

John Hampton, Operations Director – NHS at Capita
October, 2011

"I worked with Chris Johnson over a period of 4-5 years, in my role as Head Office support for NHS Services. He was excellent at facilitating the involvement of 'expert knowledge' both from within the company, and external, when implementing new services into his hospital.

Although his role was strategic, he ensured he understood enough of the detail to drive, from the top, a smooth, well organised, implementation of new services within his hospital site.

Above all, I found Chris Johnson to be a true gentleman, in every respect, in all dealings with everyone. It was always a real pleasure to work with Chris and to be involved in any projects with his hospital site."

Sally Barker, Choose and Book Lead, Nuffield Health
October, 2011

"Chris is a highly motivated Director who is focussed on the customer experience and improving clinical care whilst protecting the bottom line. His contributions to group wide strategy and committees were extremely valued and balanced in approach whilst retaining a great sense of humour.

Chris is a very likeable person to work with and brings a wealth of experience in managing an organisation as a whole."

Gail Thomson, Hospitals Governance Manager, Nuffield Health

"I have worked closely with Chris for the last four years both on the 'Learning to Behaviour' and 'GP Practice Learning Portal' projects.
