This paper provides a set of actions to address the Health and Social Care Delivery Plan's priority of developing a new approach to leadership development and talent management in NHSScotland.
NHSScotland has a 2020 Workforce Vision and Values. The vision makes a commitment
to putting people at the centre of everything we do, and using our shared values to guide
the work we do, the decisions we take and the way we treat each other. Developing
leadership capabilities and capacity across NHSScotland is a key priority in the 2020
Workforce Vision and is an integral part of improving quality to enhance patient safety
and people’s experience of services.
Supporting our current and future leaders
to reflect on and develop their strengths within the context of the 6 core leadership
capabilities for health and social care, will underpin the changes necessary to ensure
that people have access to the best possible care when they need it, and that resources
are deployed efficiently and sustainably. This new approach to leadership and talent
management also aligns with the National Workforce Plan due to be published at the end of May 2017.
