Draft Compassionate Leadership Principles for Health and Social Care in Wales

Compassionate Leadership Principles for Health and Social Care in Wales (Draft)

To drive a consistent approach to compassionate leadership across health and social care in Wales, a set of Compassionate Principles were developed based on your feedback from the extensive workforce strategy consultation and HEIW Compassionate Leadership Engagement conference in 2019.
The development of the principles was supported by Professor Michael West, a credible source of knowledge and critical friend to NHS Wales.
