Leadership Dispatch – 20 July 2023

Posted by: nicolaladkin - Posted on:

Welcome to our July edition of the Leadership Dispatch.

Developing leaders and nurturing talent within health and care is prominently featured within a range of recent national reviews and reports. Leadership for a Collaborative and Collective Future (June 2022) highlights the importance of quality leadership and management.  The Hewitt Review: an independent review of integrated care systems (April 2023) calls for collaborative leadership development that supports changes in systems leadership culture and behaviours. Leadership for improvement is an integral part of the NHS delivery and continuous improvement review recommendations (April 2023) for enhancing the quality of outcomes for our patients, communities and our health and care workforce.  Leadership, career development and talent approach our integral to the NHS Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Improvement Plan (June 2023).  

Most recently the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan (June 2023) embeds this continued focus, reflecting the importance of Our Leadership Way for supporting compassionate, inclusive cultures that retain staff and the need for talent, leadership and management improvement interventions that drive the quality of our healthcare services. 

Within the South East we continue to support staff and services to develop local leaders and talent and hope you find our offers and upcoming events as helpful part of this essential development journey.
