Commenting on Lord Rose’s report into leadership in the NHS, Rob Webster, chief executive of the NHS Confederation said:
“Lord Rose’s report on leadership in the NHS, commissioned back in February 2014, reflects some of the pressures our members are facing against a backdrop of unprecedented challenge. We know we have great people at all levels in health and care showing effective leadership in tough circumstances and under intense scrutiny. We also know this is not the case everywhere.
“In healthcare we make difficult decisions every day and we must always be guided by our values, which should be consciously stated and shape our recruitment, selection and development processes.
