The NHS should be a great place to work for everyone – both now and in the future. To do that, we must all commit to compassionate and inclusive leadership, supported by a culture of lifelong learning and development. We must all commit to promoting social justice and closing gaps in health inequalities, ensuring these principles always guide our decision-making.
Co-created with thousands of our NHS people, Our Leadership Way sets out the compassionate and inclusive behaviour we want all our leaders to show towards us as individuals and our colleagues. It also provides an opportunity for care organisations across ICSs to consider joint approaches to embedding these behaviours.
