The NHS is huge and complex. The numerous organisations which form its constituent parts continually evolve, divide, grow and merge. Processes, authority and responsibilities forever shift with each change of the political winds. How can any single person ever expect to exert a worthwhile degree of influence, even if they wanted to?
Over the course of 137 pages, ‘A Guide to Medical Leadership & The NHS 2018-19’ explores the history, structures and finance of the NHS. We consider the key drivers of organisational change, the conflicting challenges facing the NHS and the different approaches being taken by each of the four home nations of the UK. Revised July 2018, we continually relate the ‘big’ topics to everyday leadership for doctors and clinicians of all disciplines.
Both versions of the book include exercises which are designed to help you develop your thoughts and experiences by committing them to writing. The newest version of our non-printable PDF has been created with this in mind, and allows you type in responses to exercises within the digital document which can then be saved for future reference.
