Kate Grimes – autonomy and patient care in the NHS (27:51)
Kate Grimes has risen from hospital porter to CEO of Kingston NHS. In this thoughtful presentation at Happy Workplaces 2014, Kate explains how Kingston created its values-driven culture, promotes autonomy coupled with coaching and accreditation, and poses the question “If we know this stuff works so well, why doesn’t the NHS do more of it?”
