The Health Secretary has said that the new leaders of the NHS should come from both within the service and outside as he wants to, 'seek out fresh talent wherever we can find it.'
If we want this country to be a world-leader, we need a world-leading health service led by the very brightest and best, so I am ambitious about seeking out fresh talent wherever we can find it.
Mediocre management and lack of clinical leadership were key contributors to the tragedy at Mid Staffs. We are determined to learn that lesson, and train strong leaders to drive up standards across the NHS through this cutting-edge programme.
