Welcome to Really Learning – a website that offers all sorts of freely downloadable thinking to challenge the prevailing NHS management orthodoxy and provoke discussion and debate. In this way it hopes to energise clinicians of all sorts into reinventing the NHS into a dynamic, effective, 21st century service that once again inspires the UK population with confidence and pride.
Really Learning is for people who care about care and want to play their part in making it reliably effective and compassionate. It’s for people who believe in the need for excellent analysis, knowledgeable enthusiasm about clinical care, and leadership behaviours that support, challenge and enable. It’s for people who want to help put the soul back into health care organisations.
If that’s you then please read and share what is here. Discuss it, tweet, and engage.
The site aims to offer refreshing and empowering viewpoints: short pieces that take a fresh look at tired or lazy thinking –whether from policy makers, professionals or pundits – and longer essays and books that I hope will challenge your thinking and help you become more effective, excited, and determined to make a difference. There are also links and signposts to other valuable resources
It introduces too some of the support I can offer if you want to be more effective in making a difference, in the form of one-to-one work, taught programmes, learning sets and bespoke team development.
