As the transition to clinical commissioning gathers pace, a big issue for clinical commissioning groups is choosing the right leader.
Today's challenging environment demands a different approach to leadership with greater accountability, a wider range of skills across the leadership team, and the willingness and flexibility to cope with uncertainty.
This Talking Points publication explores how:
- Clinical commissioning groups should be led by a team of leaders rather than one individual.
- The roles, responsibilities and skills within leadership teams will change to meet the needs of their organisation as it evolves.
- Those within a leadership team should be prepared to take on varying levels of involvement and authority, which may mean changing leaders depending on the particular challenges being faced.
