Taking a Moment: An event for managers in Imaging across London

10 June 2021 9:00am – 10:15amBST (+01:00)
Location TBC

There is no doubt whatsoever that the NHS and its staff responded superbly well to the crises generated by the coronavirus pandemic. Through creativity, flexibility and collective effort, the service was able to meet the needs of the population – and shows a continuing capacity to meet further challenges as and when they might appear.

There is, of course, the associated recognition that our sensible focus on COVID has left many other patients unable to access the services they need. As we consider how best to acknowledge and address that population need, it is apparent that diagnostics – and, in particular, Imaging – represent a key element of that service recovery.

For so many staff in NHS trusts, it has been an extremely difficult 12 months or so. This makes the challenge of considering ways of responding to health and care requirements beyond COVID all the more challenging for clinical staff seeking to give a lead to their services.

For this reason, we are offering Imaging staff in middle management roles the opportunity to attend a two-hour facilitated event for reflection, sensemaking, and exploration of how Imaging services can be supported to work differently and deliver what is required by those who rely on our services.

This session offer space and time for people to:

  • Speak about their personal and professional experiences over the recent period;
  • Explore what from that time could usefully be retained – and what needs to be set aside; and
  • Identify the support that is needed in order to help Imaging managers to work creatively, collectively and effectively in systems settings to meet the service ambitions.

We intend to use these discussions to help us to develop a meaningful and appropriate package of support to help you, your teams, the wider professions, and your organisations to get to grips with the leadership challenge of refreshing service in light of existing demand.

This session will be run virtually via MS Teams – and all Imaging staff in Bands 6 to 8a across London are invited to join.
