NHS: Management

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 5 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps his Department is taking to improve the quality of management in the NHS. (253102)

The steps that my Department is taking to improve the quality of leadership and management in the national health service are set out in chapter five of High Quality Care for All, the final report of the Next Stage Review (a copy of which has already been placed in the Library). This report sets out a number of commitments which start early and continue throughout the career path. A new National Leadership Council, chaired by the NHS chief executive, is being established to oversee the implementation of the commitments.
