Response to the Kingsfund culture and leadership survey

21 May 2014

Commenting on The King’s Fund Culture and Leadership in the NHS survey, Professor Norman Williams, President of the Royal College of Surgeons said:

‘It is important that when problems emerge clinicians and managers do not bury their heads in the sand and so become guilty of passive inaction. Early and effective action to address concerns before the quality of patient care deteriorates is crucial. This report rightly highlights that all staff have a responsibility for the success of an organisation. Leaders must work with their staff to encourage and support a culture in which concerns can be raised openly, safely and in a timely manner.’
