“In 2011 Dr Amanda Goodall from the Cass Business School published, in the journal Social Science & Medicine, her findings of a strong positive association between the ranked quality of a hospital and whether the CEO was a physician. This paper at long last nails the myth that doctors do not make good managers. Medical and other health professionals should urgently be restored to the highest levels in hospital management if the problems to be revealed by Robert Francis, QC, are to be dealt with in a radical manner.
