The work must relate to leadership and management within the NHS, and if available, NHS Wales. Some reference to other organizations is acceptable but generally evidence should relate to nursing, medicine and professions allied to health care.
At Masters level the essay is expected to contain referenced evidence that argues for and against the different styles of management.
The structure should include:
How leadership and management skills are recognised and valued within the NHS
Outline and critique of the styles of management and how they relate to the NHS
Other topical / current concepts should also be included.
The essay should be 1100 words with around 10 to 15 APA style references. 75% of the references should be from 2006 onward and all in English as I will need to source the references and use them in further assignments. As previously mentioned a fair proportion of the references must relate to NHS and healthcare (80%). All references should be cited within the text.
