In this regard, behind this report, the leaders endorse the leadership and support the NHS Interim People plan, which takes the right tone, promising a new leadership pact. This pact (agreement), developed by drs in Training and Healthcare Leaders, has been approved by the BMA for use in health committees to outline the expectations of both parties, foster understanding and the development of a fair and mutually supported training and employment environment. There is also a consensus that the desired behaviours should not be limited to leading NHS England and Improvement, but should extend to the entire regional level and in local NHS organisations. As part of its professional responsibility, NHS Lothian expects all doctors in training to do so: the agreement highlights a number of commitments from both sides that allow them to cooperate and promote the provision of quality patient care and services in specialist services. NHS Lothian expects the doctor-in-training and NHS Lothian to become together: But it`s no surprise that local leaders are concerned that this well-intentioned rhetoric is reflected in the actions they see leaving the centre. The acceptance is that cultural changes and more sophisticated leadership behaviors will be a challenge and time-consuming throughout the system, but also a strong opinion that nothing less is enough. Leaders also want a different approach to identifying and supporting executives. You recognize the need for proactive talent management to ensure the next generation of leaders, with different skills, mindsets and backgrounds. Over the past three years, we have supported a number of NHS CEOs through a learning and support programme. So far, thirty-four executives have been part of the program and the views of the first cohort are set out in a report we released today.
This may be a product of the high turnover we still experience among leadership positions, but it also reflects the emergence of regional directors, systems managers, and primary procurement managers, as well as a new framework of supplier managers who will shape the future together. . . .
