A Review of Leadership in the NHS

Following last year's successful leadership commission, including the publication of the report, The future of leadership and management in the NHS: No more heroes, and our first annual NHS Leadership and Management Summit with the Secretary of State, we have instigated a further review. This year we will focus on the theme of leadership for engagement and these lectures are designed to stimulate debate around this theme.

This new work will encompass engagement and relationship-building across a range of dimensions within the NHS including leaders engaging staff, the public and patients; and NHS leaders engaging partner organisations in developing leadership across systems of care in order to:

  • understand/clarify the value of engaging leadership in the NHS
  • provide case studies and recommendations to support the further development of leadership for engagement in the NHS.
