Lawrence 'Lol' Benson, Senior Fellow in Health Policy and Management, Manchester Business School


Manchester Business School and the Health Services Management Centre at the University of Birmingham have been running a postgraduate course for the last five years for hospital medical registrars. The course was commissioned by the NHS Northwest deanery and is designed to introduce hospital doctors to the subjects of leadership and service improvement. This is part of a policy push from the NHS and the medical colleges to prepare hospital doctors for the formal leadership roles as consultants. We are now embarking upon a deeper evaluation of the program and this seminar will look at the plans for this evaluation and discussion of some early findings. The evaluation includes analysing the assessment on this course which is a write-up and reflection on the experience of a service improvement project the doctors have picked to work on. There is little published research and evaluation on this grade of hospital doctor.
