Organisational structures that comprise an academic health system are varied and complex making the need for excellent Boards, Chief Executives and Senior Executives increasingly vital to the success of these organisations. Perrett Laver understands the importance of having this focus on translation between research, clinical services, education and training and feel that they directly lead to clinical benefits for patients.
Bringing together organisations engaged in education, clinical research, informatics, innovation, training, and healthcare delivery, academic health systems offer a real opportunity to improve patient health and care through innovation and knowledge exchange, and consequently to generate wealth for the local health economy.
Working at the interface between health and social care and academia we are well placed to understand the profiles, values and motivations required by these organisations in their leaders.
With pressures on funding, increased competition and public scrutiny and sustainability provide some immediate challenges, the opportunity for organisations which embrace change and focus on achieving the best patient outcomes through integrated and multidisciplinary care, technological advances, and measuring impact is significant.
Our understanding of what is required in leaders within this changing landscape as well as our global perspective and unique sectoral insight enables us to identify, engage and secure outstanding leaders of healthcare organisations.
Having developed expert practices in the Health and Social Care and the Non-Profit Sectors, we have been pleased to advise on Board, Chief Executive and Senior Executive appointments for some of the largest providers of social care to older people, disadvantaged children and people with learning and physical disabilities.
The external funding pressures and reduction in statutory support in social care provision have increased the need for securing outstanding, innovative leadership and Perrett Laver bring a deep insight into the contextual challenges.
