Healthcare Executives – the essentials for excellence in leadership and management -

Packed with expert insights and practical tips for problem solving and trouble shooting, this is the ultimate guide to getting ahead and achieving more as a leader and manager in the healthcare world.

The SIG Management Group met on 20 September 2019. Main items to note were:
- The SIG welcomed new three new members to the group, Dr Jeevan Kumaradevan, Professor Dirk Pickuth and Mr Peter Harrison.
- The Sharing Platform was progressing well and it was planned to launch this excellent new membership benefit in late September. This should prove to be a great help to members, giving access to a number of resources like guidance documents, policy documents and templates.
- The SIG were organising a stream ‘Management Matters’ on Day 2 of the BIR’s Annual Congress. This would be a taster for their first event – Leadership 2020.
- Leadership 2020 in imaging and oncology is taking place on 31 January 2020 at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. This promises to be a great event and is aimed at everyone involved or interested in leadership across the imaging community. There are some excellent speakers at the event, including Professor Andreas Adam, Mr Peter Harrison and Dame Donna Kinnair.
