The Big Society, the Spending Review, setting up GP Commissioning Consortium and Health Watch all mean we’re in for vast periods of change. And change inevitably means exchanging views and opinions, communicating and engaging on many levels with many different people and sometimes, managing conflict.
Not all of this change will result in formal consultation, but it will undoubtedly require working with people to reach agreed directions of travel and to implement key steps that will affect communities nationwide and the people who serve those communities.
Being able to take an objective approach and facilitate these important discussions will be crucial, to ensure transparency prevails and bias does not play a part in reaching agreed recommendations whether that’s in relation to internal or external discussions and forums.
