Jonathan Sheffield, Chief Executive Officer, National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)

Jonathan trained as a doctor at Dundee University, before following a career as a histopathologist at Yeovil District Hospital, where he was instrumental in developing its research capabilities. In 2003 he became Medical Director for the Trust, before moving on to University Hospitals Bristol – again as Medical Director.

In 2009, Jonathan was awarded an OBE for services to the NHS. In 2011 he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians’ Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine – its highest honour – for his contribution in the area of clinical research delivery.
