Leadership Moments 5


“Minds are like parachutes, they only function when they are open”- James Dewar

“I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and finally I became that person - or he became me.” - Cary Grant

“Nine tenths of wisdom is being wise in time” - Theodore Roosevelt



Safety Culture

This is US corporate but the questions are valid to the NHS. What are you doing to improve your safety culture?



Friendships at work can be tricky - especially if you need to hold people to account


Bystander Syndrome

The murder of Kitty Genovese. Are we standing by while bad things happen in the NHS ?


Self Awareness

Can you ever fully know all that goes into you being you ?


Leadership  / Systems

Today's solutions are tomorrows problems. The NHS is not a simple broken machine so why are we trying to fix it as if it was !




‘POST’ Francis

No learning? No change? Is that your experience? What is really going?


Private Sector Relationships

New relationships! The NHS has always had a relationship with the private sector but are new relationships needed?


Patient Safety

Nothing new but some links that may interest. Although, hospitals, clinics and care homes coming together, is that new ?


New Safety Report

A new report on patient safety by the Lucian Leape Institute


Nurse Patient Ratio

Canadians focused on nurse : patient ratios as well as NHS. Very important but more to do what we have always done is not the same as better to do different.
