As a general manager in the NHS, you will play a vital role in making sure that a hospital, service or department works well and that patients are receiving the best possible care. You could be responsible for a whole department of staff and a multi-million pound budget in a hospital trust, or for managing key health services for the public across many sites.
You’ll need excellent organisational, communication and negotiating skills – as well as a good head for figures. You’ll be a confident public speaker and able to work with people from all backgrounds including patients, clinicians and the press.
You can apply if you are an experienced healthcare staff member or from outside the NHS with appropriate experience. The NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme also has a general management option to train for senior roles. You can find out more at the NHS Graduate
Management Training Scheme: www.graduates.nhs.uk
