A culture of stewardship: The responsibility of NHS leaders to deliver better value healthcare

16 / 09 / 2015

This briefing has been developed from the inaugural NHS Value Lecture given by Professor Sir Muir Gray at the NHS Confederation annual conference and exhibition in June 2015.

Sir Muir Gray is the foremost expert on value and we’ve been privileged to have worked with him on the issue. This briefing is a snapshot of the enlightened view he has on healthcare and describes how the NHS can change the way it uses public resources over the next five years. It offers a challenge to NHS leaders, yet nothing we’ve heard or seen so far would suggest they are anything except ready to deliver where they are not already doing so.

As Sir Muir says, everything in this briefing is happening somewhere. The NHS is having conversations about value every day and it’s important that we demonstrate this at a national level. The national framework needs to support local delivery by providing the space to make decisions of value and resist the temptation to encourage a blame culture.
