New book on impact of COVID-19 on people, places, economies and policy-making

New out is an interdisciplinary analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on people, places, economies and policy-making in Europe and beyond.

One chapter, written by HSMC Senior Fellow Steve Gulati, analyses different leadership approaches that were utilized in response to the COVID crisis amidst rapid organisational change within the NHS. The chapter further examines how political and economic influences shaped health system responses to the pandemic, and it anticipates future challenges of health policy: affecting leadership development, the structures within which health and care are delivered, and the dynamics of change.

Entitled Living With Pandemics, and edited by experts including John R. Bryson, Professor of Enterprise and Economic Geography at the University of Birmingham Business School, as well as Louise Reardon, Senior Lecturer in Governance and Public Policy, Institute of Local Government Studies (INLOGOV) at the University of Birmingham, the book captures how individuals, organisations and governments adapted to a pandemic with profound health and socio-economic ramifications.
