NHS Employers response to the Chartered Management Institute’s report ‘A Management and Leadership Health-Check’, published today.

Responding to the Chartered Management Institute’s report ‘A Management and Leadership Health-Check’, published today, Dean Royles, chief executive of the NHS Employers organisation, said:

“Managers in the NHS are probably the most under appreciated staff in the workforce. Mostly clinicians, they are caught between the demands and aspirations of their staff and the constant pressure of targets and service improvements, whilst often trying to give the best direct care to their patients.

“This year has seen their numbers cut by thousands, a massive reorganisation, a pay freeze and constant media pressure following the review into Mid Staffordshire – with its implications and the efforts for cultural change that it heralded. Yet they continue to cope with increasing demands on services and have delivered improvements in staff engagement and reduced sickness absence. It is an incredibly complex agenda they have to navigate and I agree that we need to spend more of our resources on their training and development and to value them more for their incredible service.”
