This chapter discusses the management of the NHS. NHS managers are often cast as villains and often accused of cutting services or as taking up money that could be better spent on care. Today, the role of health managers has become increasingly more diverse and complex as the history of the NHS has unfolded. Health managers are also asked to be leaders and they are also required to comply with centrally imposed government targets and to come up with new ideas for how health services can be better run at the local level.
