Allied Health Professions Series
Series Foreword by Penny Humphris CBE, Former Director, NHS Leadership Centre
High-quality Allied Health delivery through a motivated, committed and expert workforce depends on strong management and leadership. To provide this, Allied Health Profession managers need solid, evidence-based business skills just as much as clinical knowledge and ability.
This book focuses on the key management areas of money, measurement and marketing as applied to the Allied Health Professions. Bringing together nationally and internationally acknowledged and recognised experts from around the world, it explains the finances of healthcare, particularly in a cash-strapped environment, information and information management, and the marketing of services – in the broadest sense – based on a robust foundation of business planning and business-case development, project management, service level agreements and specification. Report writing and presentation skills are also covered, along with editors’ quality and leadership evaluation framework, the Management Quality Matrix.
The information, background and practical techniques covered in this book will make it a thought-provoking and indespensible resource both for managers and leaders of Allied Health Professionals and for those training future managers and leaders.
'Allied health professionals have a unique contribution to make in the transformation
of the health and care system and ensuring it is fit for purpose now and in
the future. Fiona Jenkins and Robert Jones are two people who model exactly
what can be achieved by taking control of one’s own development outside
of one’s comfort zone and I am delighted that they are collaborating with
others to share their expertise and experience.'
