The King's Fund -
In February and March 2014 The King’s Fund conducted a survey of NHS managers and clinicians about leadership, culture and compassionate care in the NHS. It revealed a mixed picture of leadership, culture and the working environment across the NHS. It found a consistent discrepancy between the views of executive directors and those of other NHS staff, especially nurses and doctors. Executive directors tended to be much more positive about the working environment and culture within their organisations than other staff, especially nurses.
