The aim of Leadership in Health and Social Care is to raise awareness, knowledge and understanding of leadership issues. Suitable for all those studying or working in the health and social care environment, it will encourage you to start, or continue, your leadership journey.
From reviews:


"I found this book to be an excellent read... My favourite part is at the end of each chapter where the authors very kindly give a chapter summary. I would say this, with learning outcomes for each chapter, is the reader's `pot of gold' - and an excellent resource for students.

The social and political stance of this text is sensitively weaved throughout, encouraging the wider thought processes of the reader. Images and illustrations provide a welcome and useful change to the traditional academic text, and I would recommend the book as an important reference resource for those starting on their leadership journey, or for those wanting to update. A well-informed, easy read that I will be recommending to our students to support their studies."


The Biomedical Scientist, 2013: 70 (4)


"This
is an excellent book for anyone who is starting to take an interest in Leadership
within their health or social care role... Overall, the book
is clearly aimed at practitioners and should be a `must-read' for those who
wish to understand more about practical leadership and who aspire to more
senior positions within their field of practice."


Lecturer,

University Faculty of Health Sciences


Leadership in Health and
Social Care is an accessible text for
students and practitioners seeking to
develop their leadership skills.


"I
commend this book to you as a `way in' to the leadership world for anyone
working in health and social care. It treats you like an adult and expects you
to take responsibility for your own leadership development.


We
now know that good leadership has a direct relationship with good services and
we can certainly no longer afford mediocrity. We need leaders to enable the
disruptive innovation that will be required to improve the quality of care with
less resource to do so."



From
the Foreword by Karen Middleton, Chief Health Professions Officer for England.
