There is a general recognition that future solutions to the NHS’s problems will require much more working across different organisations within local health economies. Leading a single trust or clinical commissioning group, however successfully, will no longer be seen as sufficient: leaders will also need to influence other players locally and work in a different way to the past.
The HSJ roundtable being held on the 24th March, is in association with Fortrus and Hunter Healthcare, the following areas will shape the focus of discussion:
*What sort of skills will leaders need in this new landscape and what can they do to develop them, both personally and among their staff?
*What can leaders do to facilitate joint solutions when many organisations are already under pressure and managers struggle to look beyond the day job?
*What are some of the barriers to working in a more collaborative way across both health organisations, and with other partners such as the voluntary sector and social care?
*How will the Five Year Forward View affect this?
The event will be recorded and written up for publication in a future edition of HSJ, for further information, please contact:
