Kieran Walshe (1995-2001)

Kieran WalsheI spent seven years working at HSMC (1995-2001) as a Senior Research Fellow, with interests mainly in clinical governance, performance and policy evaluation. It was a great time, when HSMC was close to both policy and practice, and there was a real sense that our work influenced government and the NHS for the better.

I now work at Manchester Business School, but I still enjoy working closely with colleagues from HSMC, particularly on our joint programme for the NHS Management Training Scheme. As an ex-trainee myself, I think one of the most important things I can do is to help shape and develop the people who will be leading the NHS in ten, twenty or thirty years time.
