The next instalment of our Women in Leadership Series is focusing in on the gender inequality within positions of leadership in the Health Service.
In conjunction with the YF Health Network, we'll be exploring the reasons for, and solutions to, the fact that the number of female clinical managers is disproportionately low compared to the large number of female clinicians and frontline staff. Recent research has shown there to be a significant issue with the number of female leaders in the NHS and this event aims to explore the reasons behind this as well as the social, economic and political implications for patients, clinicians and wider society.
At this roundtable event, we'll be hearing from some amazing speakers while also hearing your experiences and views on the question of whether the healthcare system has a woman problem.
