A weekly newsletter from Paul Conroy, CEO, IHM
Hancock has had a busy week. At the tail of last week he was espousing the value of leadership in business and the military and this week he’s asking around for a press officer.
I don’t entirely disagree with him. The IHM has a long and proud history with military medical managers, plenty of members in the private sector and plans for exchange programs with business and global health systems for 2019. But I can’t help feeling that we need to dig for victory and grow our own, rather than hope the U boats of politics and poor pay don’t sink the supplies from elsewhere.
It’s why we will be launching our new series #BeyondBetter in 2019 to talk to the great and good from other sectors and see what Healthcare has to learn. We’ll be starting with the prolific Professor Stephen Heppell and his work in international education.
It’s why we partnered with the PMA to provide our ILM accredited, apprenticeship levy funded level 5 qualification in Healthcare Management in October and are now recruiting our next cohort.
It’s also why we are so excited to announce today our partnership with Coventry University to provide a masters in Healthcare management, again fully funded by the levy. And under the watchful Worldly-wise eye of the awesome Adam Layland.
It’s why we’re launching our IHM strands – live ongoing discussions on the MedCrowd platform (think WhatsApp on N3, only better!) and with an ongoing series of articles, events and ideas to share to spur discussion and enrich our members.
It’s why we’re working on a ground breaking preceptorship for managers who are new to the NHS or who simply want a refresh.
It’s why 2019 promises to be a truly exciting year in the life our our IHM.
