Talking to health managers about change: heroes, villains and simplification



Talking to health managers about change: heroes, villains and simplification



Journal of Health Organization and Management 18(4-5): 321-335



This paper presents contextual and empirical analyses of the pressures on senior health managers in the NHS through an examination of the documents produced by the NHS National Co-ordinating Centre for Service Delivery and Organisation on "Managing change". The result is a discussion and advocacy of the means through which "knowledge" with "knowing" might be brought together in the NHS to move it more towards an evidence-based approach to management.
