NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) has launched a new publication containing practical advice to empower current and future women clinical leaders.
Lessons in leadership from women clinical commissioning leaders aims to support women to achieve their full potential and inspire them to apply for leadership roles.
The publication is being launched on the first anniversary of NHSCC’s report Women in clinical commissioning leadership - a case for change which called for the gender imbalance in clinical commissioning leadership to be tackled.
The new briefing contains practical examples from women clinical commissioning leaders on the skills, values, and behaviours that helped them to succeed in their own roles.
NHSCC co-chair and clinical chief officer of Blackpool CCG Dr Amanda Doyle, said:
“Achieving gender equality in clinical commissioning leadership is vital not only in terms of fairness but also in terms of improved performance. As the NHS continues to face unprecedented challenge, now is the time to act to encourage and empower more women to become leaders."
