Dear Chris- a very helpful analysis, and one which we will use here at Papworth in our Staff Engagement initiative.
One tiny corrrection, and that is my tenure here as CEO of Papworth is 26 years, not the 11 as shown. I realise that means we should be doing better, so this has inspired me to try harder. Kind regards.

You could not be more right that it is essential to improve staff engagement in the NHS. But your review's methodology is dubious in basing its argument about the benefits of employee shares on private sector experience, where the intrinsic motivational dynamic is quite different. Employee shares are not necessary to improve staff engagement in the NHS, whereas there are great risks from fragmentation. For more: http://bit.ly/1t2kupb
