Healthy leadership for all our futures

Health and care have become more prominent in all our lives than ever before. In the UK the healthcare sector is at a critical point and requires the very best leadership to navigate an evolving and challenging terrain.

There is much work being done by senior leaders to actively address challenges and implement change, such as increasing staff pipeline; embedding connected digital strategies; and implementing more diversity amongst its own cohort. And all of this is being done against the backdrop of tighter budgets.

Our approach

Championing diversity, equity and inclusion

Our experience

The sector’s vast and complex levels of change require more diverse, partnership-oriented and data-driven leaders to be appointed across the sector to ensure its future sustainability. At Saxton Bampfylde we are proven partners supporting critically-strategic appointments at the most senior Executive and Non-Executive levels. From start-up healthtech businesses to leading NHS Trusts; from private healthcare businesses to national institutes and emerging NHS system leaders – we advise them all. We know the importance of game-changing leadership appointments for the health and care ecosystem and we are dedicated to finding and guiding them.

An inclusive approach to diversifying leadership

To preserve our populations of the future we need to make sure leaders are on the same page as their people. This is imperative to the health and care sector and as industry-recognised diversity advocates we work hard with clients to address diversity on Boards and Executive teams – however there is always more to be done. We have expanded our award-winning REACH Programme to work in parallel with the NHS, focusing specifically on supporting people from ethnically diverse communities to reach the next level in their careers within health and care.
