Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer for England, said: “This is very useful and timely and gives the knowledge and expertise required to mobilise and implement the changes set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View.
“This common-sense, easy-to-read guide will be helpful to system leaders in trying to bring about the sustainable, large scale change that everyone can and is willing to contribute to. I wholeheartedly commend it and would encourage people to use it.”

We feel it brings together in one place a fantastic series of resources that will help leaders meet the unique and complex challenges – both today and in the future.”
