NHS Highland has undertaken major transformation of its health and care service, and is an exemplar of innovation and quality improvement. With the launch of our joint leadership development programme, Vijaya Nath considers what we can learn from its experience.
Vijaya Nath reflects on the issues raised in a recent round-table event on how the NHS can better enable black and minority ethnic staff to achieve their potential as leaders.
With January now having drawn to a close, Vijaya Nath takes the opportunity to review the challenges for clinical leaders in the year ahead.
While there is still much more to do to achieve equality for those from diverse backgrounds who aspire to leadership roles in health and care, there is reason for hope, says Vijaya Nath.
Vijaya Nath looks at one of the challenges facing NHS leaders – how to get the workforce, particularly clinicians, working in new ways more closely aligned to the changing nature of care.
At our recent summit we heard from women and men who have taken action, taken on organisations and started to make the progress we need to advance women in medicine, but there is still much more to do.
