New NHS leadership framework unveiled

30th June 2011

The Department of Health has launched a new leadership framework for the NHS that will form a key part of the government's healthcare reform plans.

Developed by the National Leadership Council based on feedback from healthcare sector stakeholders, the framework is designed to set out guiding principles for those in positions of authority across all clinical professions.

Among its key objectives are the empowerment of frontline staff and the encouragement of new skills and behaviour, enabling them to organise themselves and design services that offer better patient outcomes.

According to health secretary Andrew Lansley, this need for improved NHS leadership comes at a challenging time for the health service, due to cost concerns and the ageing population.

He said: "Leadership matters wherever there are decisions to be taken, wherever there are examples to be set and people to lead – this includes both clinical and non-clinical staff."

This comes after a number of new amendments to the NHS reform plans were announced earlier this month, including a requirement for foundation trust hospitals to hold their board meetings in public as a means of encouraging transparency.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800607284-ADNFCR
