The MSc Healthcare Management and Leadership programme provides an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in relation to effectively managing and leading people, processes and practices within healthcare settings. Management and leadership in the health and social care sector is increasingly important both in the UK and worldwide, with the NHS promoting specific values and principles of care (Department of Health, 2010) and the World Health Organisation highlighting the need for managers and leaders to have appropriate skills and knowledge (WHO, 2007).

Designed specifically for existing and aspiring managers and leaders, through completion of this programme, students will develop skills to critically debate the challenges facing healthcare leaders, and the roles that clinicians, managers and the wider healthcare economy can play in reshaping healthcare services. It will also enable managers and leaders.to apply their learning to their workplace environment through practical and applied leadership case studies, debates and challenges.

It addresses the important factors influencing the management and leadership of both organisations and individuals. It aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and resources to enable them to reach their full potential as managers and leaders.
