Today, Andrew helped to establish a cross-party group on Clinical Leadership and Management to examine, promote and advance leadership and management in healthcare.
The new APPG, chaired by Andrew, will hold a number of events and meeting with the hope of enabling, encouraging, and supporting more frontline medical staff to take on leadership roles, either within the NHS or the health sector more widely.
Following the Inaugural meeting of the APPG, Andrew commented:
'It's clear that quality management with the involvement of clinicians improves healthcare outcomes. This Group will examine how leadership in healthcare can be advanced for the benefit of patients.'
Andrew set out the need for this new All-Party Parliamentary Group in last week's Health Services Journal.
