Earlier this year the London Leadership Academy brought in Lord Nigel Crisp, former Chief Executive of the NHS to come in and deliver a masterclass that looked at leadership from outward in.
Titled “What the NHS can learn about health from emerging and developing countries?” encouraged delegates to confront their pre-conceptions and assumptions about health and health care and introduced them to ideas from other countries, encouraging them to change their practice as leaders and practitioners.
Citing examples of health and mental health care in the likes of Bihar, Zambia and Jamaica, Lord Crisp looked at the similarities and differences facing the various health systems looking at how the systems have developed practices and ideas that have wider application.
The session was very well received with feedback on the day suggesting the content broadened the scope for delegates forcing them to consider health care and from alternative angles as well as cultures.
We are pleased to be able to share a short video summary of the session which can be viewed here
