In an increasingly challenging climate, does the NHS need a new style of leadership?
In the past six months, a number of new chief executives have taken up roles in NHS trusts across the country. On the eve of Confed17, join the HSJ Women Leaders Network as we explore a new vision of NHS leadership.
Representing a wide portfolio of services including community, mental health, learning disabilities, acute, and a range of specialist services, we will be hearing from CEOs on their experiences as new senior leaders, how they got there, and what they aim to do differently to be truly inclusive leaders.
Through discussion and group work this event will also give you the opportunity to explore what can be done at a national, local and personal level to enable new wave leaders to deliver effective, positive change. Whether you want to ask them about diversity in the boardroom, influencing NHS/social care policy or challenging bias, our Q&A session will give you the opportunity to engage and debate with the panel.
