Top leadership – Sponsored by NHS Leadership Academy


Leadership is not just about seniority or rank. Leaders can be inspiring. They set examples to show how things should be done. They challenge us and they make us want to follow them. Exceptional leaders, never settle for “all right” they strive for better. They listen to and empathise with their colleagues and patients who are centre of all they do. We would like to hear inspirational stories of outstanding leadership.
