HSJ’s Respect for Managers Campaign

It’s lovely to see the HSJ and so many clinical leaders calling on more respect for managers.  It’s a little worrying that we need to point out that “NHS managers are as dedicated to the service as any other group of professionals”, but it does need restated.  I’m always keen to point out that, although the emphasis on clinical leadership is essential, there will always be roles that can’t be filled by clinicians – dedicated procurement specialists, HR experts, finance professionals – and, I suspect, strategy and improvement managers to synthesise the great ideas other professionals come up with into workable plans.  I wish the campaign every success.
