One of the profession’s most authoritative champions recently told Nursing Times that nurse leadership is lacking from the ward right up to the House of Lords.
Baroness Audrey Emerton said the quality of nursing care often came down to the quality of leadership.
However, she feared nurses across the UK were not getting the training or support they needed to become leaders and middle management in particular was “weak”.
Do you agree with Baroness Emerton’s comments? What should be done to improve leadership in the profession?
