Prioritising NHS Management Training
“We should have high expectations of our leaders, but I think if we are going to have high expectations, we have to bake in an expectation that there will be ongoing training, there will be ongoing development, that it will be high quality, that it will be assessed, and that it will give people the skills that they need to do these jobs.” Amanda Pritchard.
To preserve high standards of care quality and guarantee the security of those providing and receiving care, training is crucial for NHS managers, as it:
- Equips them with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to effectively carry out their roles in a complex and dynamic healthcare environment.
- Provides a deep understanding of healthcare systems, policies, and procedures.
- Helps them stay updated on the latest developments in the healthcare sector, including medical advancements, regulatory changes, and best practices.
Arguing that introducing statutory regulation would improve the development of managers, Amanda Pritchard highlighted that this work should become a priority in order to continue to attract a high calibre of leaders into the NHS.
NHS management training to improve patient safety
Investing in management training will aim to set standards and hold those accountable if and when dangerous circumstances arise.
By giving priority to an NHS management training programme that is centred around the patient, risks to patients can be mitigated, resulting in an enhanced and safer experience for them. By integrating components such as efficiently communicating with their teams and effectively managing individuals with behavioural challenges, managers can actively pursue organisational objectives while ensuring the preservation of patient safety.
