Medical revalidation

Our qualitative assessment of the impact to date of medical revalidation on the behaviour of doctors and the culture of organisations within seven case study sites across England. Medical revalidation of doctors became a statutory obligation for all employing organisations in 2012, but its origins stretch back to 2000. In that period, the NHS has undergone many changes and been scrutinised by several reviews. It was against this shifting context that The King's Fund carried out a qualitative assessment of the impact to date of medical revalidation on the behaviour of doctors and the culture of organisations within seven case study sites across England.

Developing collective leadership for health care

Our paper argues that collective leadership – as opposed to command-and-control structures – provides the optimum basis for caring cultures. With the NHS facing bigger challenges than ever before, leaders must ensure that cultures within health care organisations sustain high-quality, compassionate and ever-improving care. Key to shaping these cultures is leadership.

Culture and leadership in the NHS

The King's Fund's second leadership survey revealed a mixed picture of leadership, culture and the working environment across the NHS. In February and March 2014 The King’s Fund conducted a survey of NHS managers and clinicians about leadership, culture and compassionate care in the NHS. We received more than 2,000 responses. This is the second leadership survey of NHS staff we have undertaken and it revealed a mixed picture of leadership, culture and the working environment across the NHS.

Medical engagement

Our report is based on case studies of four NHS trusts with acknowledged high levels of medical engagement. It aims to help other organisations that are seeking to create cultures in which doctors want to engage more in the management, leadership and improvement of services. What is good medical engagement? In those organisations where it exists, how has good medical engagement been created and sustained? These questions are at the heart of this report, which builds on earlier work from The King’s Fund on medical leadership.

NHS is not (yet) in crisis, but what about school rugby?

If a crisis is the point of judgment, the nadir, the turning point, the NHS in England can’t yet be judged to be in crisis, said John Appleby of the health think tank the King’s Fund in a BBC interview this week, because things may well get worse (doi:10.1136/bmj.h50). This is hardly reassuring but probably realistic. Hospitals around the country are declaring “major incidents” because of a lack of beds or staff or both, emergency departments report that they are at breaking point, and general practice is under unprecedented pressure (doi:10.1136/bmj.h66, doi:10.1136/bmj.g7266, doi:10.1136/bmj.g6069, doi:10.1136/bmj.g6040). And there is little sign yet of things improving. Less realistic but more palatable is the belief of NHS England’s chief executive, Simon Stevens, that the £30bn (funding gap expected for 2020-21 can be narrowed to £8bn. This is magical thinking, says Nigel Hawkes (doi:10.1136/bmj.g7842).

Exploring CQC’s well-led domain

The CQC’s inspections focus on five key lines of enquiry as part of its ‘well-led’ domain. This paper sets out what boards can do in these five areas and draws on examples of good practice in leadership and culture in health care. Following the Francis Report into the failures of care at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, and the government’s response to the report, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has introduced a more rigorous and wide-ranging approach to inspecting health care providers. The main purpose of inspections is to assess the quality of care delivered to patients. In making this assessment, CQC now also analyses the leadership and organisational culture of providers.

Clinical applications of preimplantation genetic testing

Genetic diagnostic technologies are rapidly changing the way medicine is practiced. Preimplantation genetic testing is a well established application of genetic testing within the context of in vitro fertilization cycles. It involves obtaining a cell(s) from a developing embryo in culture, which is then subjected to genetic diagnostic analysis; the resulting information is used to guide which embryos are transferred into the uterus. The potential applications and use of this technology have increased in recent years. Experts agree that preimplantation genetic diagnosis is clinically appropriate for many known genetic disorders. However, some applications of such testing, such as preimplantation genetic screening for aneuploidy, remain controversial. Clinical data suggest that preimplantation genetic screening may be useful, but further studies are needed to quantify the size of the effect and who would benefit most.

Why would a consultant think of going into management?

The NHS is keen to encourage more senior doctors to move into management, but few make the leap. Not only is there an “us and them” culture but the risks are far too high. Richard Vize reports

Leadership and leadership development in health care

A summary of the evidence about leadership in health care services, published in collaboration with the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management and the Center for Creative Leadership. A key challenge facing all NHS organisations is to nurture cultures that ensure the delivery of continuously improving high-quality, safe and compassionate health care. Leadership is the most influential factor in shaping organisational culture and ensuring the necessary leadership behaviours, strategies and qualities are developed is fundamental. But what do we really know about leadership in health care services?
