Is there a leadership crisis in the NHS?

The King's Fund
Event type: 
Breakfast seminar


With the health service facing huge financial and operational challenges, the pressure on NHS leaders has never been more intense. As a number of chief executives of NHS organisations step down from their roles, this event discussed what it is like to lead an organisation in today's NHS.

The event saw the launch of our new report, The chief executive's tale, based on a series of interviews with 12 current and former chief executives of NHS organisations.

Listen to presentations from the event:

Nicholas Timmins

Angela Pedder

Marcus Powell

This was the third in a series of events focusing on the big challenges for the NHS in 2016.
