New NHS leadership framework – Developing people improving care | NHS England
NHS England and NHS Improvement have been working with the other health Arms Length Bodies (ALBs) to develop the new NHS leadership framework – Developing people improving care.
This is an evidence-based national framework to guide action on improvement skill-building, leadership development and talent management for people in NHS-funded roles.
The framework focuses on helping NHS and social care staff to develop four critical capabilities:
- systems leadership for staff who are working with partners in other local services on ‘joining up’ local health and care systems for their communities
- established quality improvement methods that draw on staff and service users’ knowledge and experience to improve service quality and efficiency
- inclusive and compassionate leadership, so that all staff are listened to, understood and supported, and that leaders at every level of the health system truly reflect the talents and diversity of people working in the system and the communities they serve
- talent management to support NHS-funded services to fill senior current vacancies and future leadership pipelines with the right numbers of diverse, appropriately developed people
