Leading Anchor Organisations Masterclass 1: Leadership Review – leading and leadership in anchor institutions


The NHS is committed to addressing the social determinants of health, improve health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. Anchor institutions are large public sector organisations which are rooted in place and connected to their communities, such as universities, local authorities, and hospitals and work together with their communities to tackle these challenges. Anchors have significant assets and spending power and are often a significant employer in an area and can consciously use these resources to benefit communities. Traditionally anchors focus on employability, procurement  and sustainability strategies and can, when aligned across the ICS partner organisations, contribute significantly to the economic situation and help to reduce health inequalities.  It can also contribute to addressing the workforce supply issues across the health and care sector.

To Consider leadership issues and deepen the understanding of anchor institutions and their potential to solve some NHS challenges and also reduce inequalities, this mini masterclass is for all staff nationally, working in the public sector to share, adopt and adapt existing good practice from other anchor institutions.
