Organisers of an NHS leadership project called the Nye Bevan Programme have decided to use Jersey as an example for managers after visiting the Island to see how it is implementing changes to the service.
The programme is designed to show future NHS leaders how organisations can work together effectively to improve their services.
Named after Aneurin Bevan, the former Minister of Health who helped found the NHS in 1948, the programme aims to enable participants “to lead like Nye Bevan, with a bold vision and wide-ranging influence.”
Jersey’s consultation work which led to the White Paper "Caring for Each Other, Caring for Ourselves", forms a major part of the study, which will also look at how the island is modernizing healthcare.
Health Minister Anne Pryke said: “We were delighted to be approached about featuring in a programme which the NHS uses to identify and nurture the senior management who will lead the organisation in the future. Some people might expect Jersey to seek guidance and inspiration from the UK, but in fact it is the other way round in this case.”
The Nye Bevan Programme is designed to give participants leadership skills and knowledge while helping to develop a more compassionate NHS. Participants come from a range of professional backgrounds and work towards an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Executive Healthcare Leadership.
Karen Lynas, Deputy Managing Director at the NHS Leadership Academy, said: “Sharing good practice in health and social care systems across the world helps to broaden our participants’ thinking and is a major feature of the Bevan programme. The Jersey case for change sits alongside examples from across the globe and is helping to inspire the next generation of healthcare leaders.”
