Exploring medical leadership and engagement

Our Review of Leadership in the NHS has a focus on leadership for engagement in the NHS and we are keen to explore the history and challenges of medical leadership and engagement as part of this work.

Our review and report, published on the 23 May 2012, looked at the growing evidence that securing greater engagement of staff in general – and doctors in particular in leadership leads to a higher quality of care and greater productivity.

Video interviews on engaging medical leadership

As a further contribution to the debate, Professor Richard Bohmer, International Visiting Fellow, conducted interviews with three prominent leaders in this area, Professor Chris Ham, Sir Robert Naylor and Paul Zollinger-Read to better understand the history and challenges of medical leadership and engagement.

The three short videos explore:

  1. The history of medical leadership
  2. The origins of physician disengagement
  3. The challenges of medical leadership
