NHS management – the retailer’s view

There has certainly been a blizzard of announcements from the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt – including reform of consultants’ contracts, a new single hospital trust regulator and a buddying scheme linking a leading US hospital to five NHS trusts.

He spelled out in some detail his vision of a patient-centred, transparent NHS providing a full seven-day-a-week service. With rather less fanfare, a report on the leadership of the NHS in England was made available to MPs and put up on the Department of Health website https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/better-leadership-for-tomorrow-nhs-leadership-review.

This is the work of a leading figure in the business world, Stuart (now Lord) Rose who once ran Marks & Spencer.

Early last year he was given the task of reporting on how to develop potential top managers in the health service and how strong leadership might help deliver reform where required in hospitals. The Rose report was delivered at the end of last year. He was then asked by Jeremy Hunt to update it to take account of the Five Year View produced by Simon Stevens and other NHS leaders in England.

A new version was duly delivered in the spring. But nothing more has been heard of it till now.
