The NHS continues to face significant service and financial challenges. There is a real need for leaders in health and social care to
- Become more commercially aware in their approach to these challenges
- Support wellbeing and disease prevention - rather than simply treating disease
- Encourage more care where people live – when they do not require treatment in a hospital setting
- Transform the whole system of care – not just individual organisations
This requires more joined up care and a fresh and innovative approach to tackle some of the complex challenges we face in improving quality whilst dealing with on- going financial pressures. Many models of care have been developed, some successful and some not so much. Patients still have to deal with gaps and overlaps in care provision. Working together, we can do better.
A core requirement for the future will be the ability to work across organisations, tackling professional and organisational barriers so that care can be better coordinated and more effectively delivered. This requires leaders at all levels to work together to add value and make an impact on the population they serve.
This highly interactive two-day introductory programme will help you understand some of the issues behind system leadership. It will give you an opportunity to discuss the obstacles to collaboration across organisations and to learn how successful systems have integrated and transformed services.
