Professor Dean Fathers will be giving a Guest Lecture on Thursday 28th January at Leeds Beckett University.This lecture is part of the Guest Lecture Series for the Centre for Governance, Leadership and Global Responsibility. The lecture will look at, ‘adding value in the public sector’.

Health organisations in the UK have the double pressure of meeting increasing demands at the same time as meeting financial improvement targets. This lecture will look at this fundamental challenge and suggest that some of the solution might mean that NHS leaders might just need to break with conventional norms and received wisdoms.

Dean became Chair of Nottinghamshire Healthcare in January 2011. Alongside his duties in the NHS, Dean is also a Professor in Practice of Healthcare Management at Cass Business School, a Visiting Professor at Leeds Business School in the Centre for Governance, Leadership and Global Responsibility, a Professorial Fellow with the Institute of Mental Health, Vice Chair of the NHS Confederation’s Mental Health Network and Chair of the Steering Group: National evaluation review of Schwartz Round Centres, King’s College, London. He is also the Senior Independent Director of both JRI Orthopaedics and Higos Insurance, and a Non-Executive Director of Finegreen.

Prior to becoming Chair of Nottinghamshire Healthcare Dean chaired NHS Bassetlaw, had a period as a Non-Executive Director on the South Yorkshire Strategic Health Authority and has also chaired Doncaster Health Authority. Dean has a strong interest in leadership/development as well as governance and has consequently held roles on the NHS’s National Training Group, chaired the East Midlands SHA’s Learning and Development Board, was a founder of the East Midlands Leadership Academy, of which he is also a Board Member and also held Board roles on two Workforce Development Boards.
