About Us

With a diverse team ranging from medical students to a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, our Leadership Blog team work hard to commission, edit, publish and disseminate a range of inspiring healthcare leadership blog posts. We our indebted to our amazing team, who have published pieces from a wide range of authors, including Lord Darzi.

One highlight this year was our joint release of Why is staffing still a problem in the NHS? Lack of flexibility may be the answer (Dena El-Sawy, Emma Cox, Lord Archibald Kirkwood of Kirkhope, Johann Malawana) with BMJ Opinion. This piece explored discussions which started at our HLAxLords event in October 2018. We were delighted to find that within 5 days it had received 1442 page views, moving it to the ‘Most Read’ section of BMJ Opinion.
