The NHS is facing some of its biggest financial and quality challenges since its inception. An ageing population poses significant challenges to our health care system. The increase in demand means that the NHS needs to make efficiency savings worth £20bn by 2015. Older people are more likely to have complex conditions, requiring better co-ordination and integration of care. Never before has effective leadership and management been so vital for our health care system.
