Nicholas Timmins: NHS leaders under the microscope


Published: 28/03/2013

In this interview Nicholas Timmins, Senior Associate at the Nuffield Trust and former Public Policy Editor of the Financial Times, discusses the key issues that emerged from interviews he conducted with some of the most experienced NHS leaders of the past decade and more.

The interviews he conducted with NHS leaders from acute trusts, primary care trusts, strategic health authorities and health regulators came at a crucial time in the reform of the NHS, with the new structures introduced by the Coalition Government about to go live in April 2013.

The reflections and lessons from the interviews have been written up and are described in the Nuffield Trust’s new publication: Changing of the guard: lessons for the NHS from departing health leaders (March 2013).
