“We need more people to change, we need more practitioners in healthcare to change, we need more managers to change, we need the leadership to embrace change to keep up with the everyday demand that is facing us in the NHS,” he said.
HSJ also heard from the frontline staff about what pledges they had made last year and how they benefitted their patients and colleagues.
