After over a decade advising a broad range of NHS organisations on Board-level appointments, the challenges and joys of leadership in the NHS have become familiar, if ever-evolving, territory to our team. Through working on over 200 appointments of chief executives, executive directors, chairs and non-executives, all navigating the changing policy environment and eternally shifting infrastructure through which the services of the NHS are delivered, it remains a challenging and fulfilling environment for today’s leader. Attracting talent to the top level remains a commitment and at the forefront of our work in the sector.
