NHS Leadership Framework

The new NHS Leadership Framework was introduced by the Secretary of State on 29th June. 


The NHS Leadership Framework is for everyone working in health and care, regardless of role, discipline or function. As Andrew Lansley said, “Leadership matters not only when you may have reached a senior level.  It matters from the very moment you enter training and the workplace. There is a shared responsibility for the success of any healthcare organisation, for the services it provides and for care it delivers.  Acts of leadership can come from anyone in an organisation.  The Framework reflects that.”


The Leadership Framework is now accessible on the web. You can find it at www.nhsleadership.org.uk/framework.asp
