Healthcare Science Leads Four Countries Event Friday 21 November 2014

Healthcare Science Leads Four Countries Event

Healthcare Science Leadership and Clinical Outcomes

Healthcare Scientists’ identity has consolidated over the last decade, but their contribution as strategic leaders in NHS provider organisations across the UK is still at an early stage. Clinical outcomes are paramount: the intent is to serve patients and influence organisations to best harness the contribution of the Healthcare Science workforce. This four-country meeting, hosted by Scotland, reflects on the purpose and achievements of scientific leaders. It will offer an opportunity to reflect on the perspective of others of Healthcare Science, and to debate the barriers and opportunities for the senior workforce in these roles.

  • How have the changes in NHS England affected HCS leadership potential?
  • Does NHS Scotland’s focus on quality and safety offer opportunities for scientific leadership?
  • NHS Wales introduced Directors of Science and Therapy in 2010 – what lessons can we learn from that inititative?

Who Should Attend?

Healthcare Science colleagues from across the four-countries are invited to join us in Edinburgh to help develop and share thinking.
