Clinical leadership

Clinical leadershipThe recent Darzi report recommends an increase in clinical leadership in the NHS. Whilst Professor Stefan Scholtes, Dennis Gillings Professor of Health Management at Cambridge Judge Business School, believes it is important to have more clinicians on the board, he cautions that this approach needs to be thoughtfully implemented, arguing that the key is to motivate clinicians to want to become managers, and to then train them up, equipping them with the necessary managerial skills to make economically sensible decisions about the distributions of resources.
