The health and care sector provides an enormous range of services to some 53 million people in England. Without skilled and dedicated managers to lead and run it, we would not be able to do what we’re here for – treating and caring for patients.
Health service managers, many of whom have a clinical background, are responsible for commissioning and delivering local healthcare, through the management of hospital, GP and community health services.
If you like the idea of a career in management, the sector offers unrivalled opportunity and variety. Leaders are also needed in all parts of the system, including community health providers and mental health trusts,. You could be a manager running a GP surgery or ambulance station, or a chief executive controlling a large hospital with a budget of millions of pounds.
