A Practical Guide

This guide helps undergraduate medics and junior doctors, as well as experienced doctors taking on new managerial responsibilities, to become effective leaders and managers by introducing both management and clinical leadership theory and practice, and the challenges facing medical managers in today's NHS. Despite growing recognition of the importance of leadership and management to doctors in meeting their clinical responsibilities, training in medical schools and foundation years remains patchy. The book explores how management and leadership can enhance health professionals' individual and organisational effectiveness, job satisfaction, and careers. Scenarios draw from the authors' real-life tales, while accompanying exercises encourage readers to reflect on their own experience. Fully referenced, and digestible both in full and as a reference resource, this is vital reading for medical students, junior doctors, and those who teach and train them. It will also prove useful to experienced doctors taking on new managerial responsibilities. `Clinical leadership across the NHS may take many forms ranging from frontline leaders who provide excellent service through a spectrum of clinical innovators and academics, to those who provide leadership through their professional bodies or through managerial involvement at various levels in their employing institution. This admirable book is aimed at young clinicians and invites them, through a series of vignettes and issues coupled with practical theory, to enter the world of management. I hope that everyone who reads this book will accept that invitation, because it is only through effective service design, management and change that we can practise medicine in the way and in the environment that is best for both patients and clinicians.'

This work includes Foreword by David Nicholson - Chief Executive, National Health Service of England. In the past, there has been too little emphasis and investment made in developing leaders in healthcare. People have become leaders without being prepared or trained or supported in the role. Individuals need to understand the context, the concept and models of good leadership, the practical steps to becoming a good leader, and how to sustain the various components of a well functioning and effective organisation, whether that is a large NHS trust or hospital department, a clinical group or practice team. This guide has been written by a range of writers from organisational consultancy and NHS backgrounds who are all experienced in developing and supporting leaders, planning and providing education, and change management. It is specially designed for independent learning, with answers to frequently asked questions, self-assessment exercises and helpful tips. "How to Succeed as a Leader" is ideal for all healthcare professionals in (or aspiring to) leadership roles. It also provides inspiration for academics and workplace educators, managers and leaders in government, strategic health authorities and workforce deaneries. 'There is constant reorganisation and a changing culture in our health service. Good leadership is essential to address the changes required and take others with you so that the service can function effectively. There has been an amateurish approach to leadership in the NHS in the past, where people have become leaders without being prepared or trained for the role or supported in it. This book is all about presenting you with a practical approach to becoming a competent leader, to prepare you to lead in a positive way and realise your responsibilities as a leader.'
