NHS Alliance urges government to 'inspire' GPs

The coalition government will face real difficulties delivering change unless it forges a meaningful relationship with front-line clinicians and managers, according to the NHS Alliance.

Dr Michael Dixon (pictured), NHS Alliance chairman, said: ‘Structural and organisational changes alone won't bring results, unless there is a real cultural change whereby front-line clinicians and managers are included and feel inspired to take the government's agenda forward.

‘Traditionally, the government has had a new idea, senior management has pushed it down the line and those at the working face of the NHS have tried to make practical sense of it or, on too many occasions, carry out the letter but not the spirit.

‘Effective health policy means connecting with GPs, nurses, allied health professionals and managers - inspiring, engaging and empowering them to do their job better.'
