The Lead Consultant in Emergency Medicine or clinical lead is a position at Holby City Hospital. A person with this title is in charge of the emergency department and its staff.

The clinical lead has a range of responsibilities, including reporting back to the CEO, managing rotas for the doctors and resolving any staffing or budget issues in the department. Although the clinical nurse manager has authority over the nurses, the clinical lead also has power over the nursing staff.

To date, there have been six non-acting permanent clinical leads since the position was established in 2002. The longest serving of these was Harry Harper who held the position from the date of its conception until 2008 when he left the department. Additionally, there have been four acting clinical leads in the past, one of whom being Zoe Hanna who later went on to take on the permanent role at which point she became the department's first ever female clinical lead.

The clinical lead is selected by the board, and appointed by the hospital's CEO at that time.
