On Tuesday 5th September 2017, Professor Carol Propper, Imperial College, will lead an OHE Lunchtime Seminar on the topic of: Management in the NHS.
This seminar will examine how much the CEOs of NHS hospitals can influence different factors of production of hospital care. Using a sample of over 100 managers in nearly 200 large NHS hospitals over 15 years, it will examine the effect a CEO has on clinical performance, staffing, financial performance, waiting times and other measures of hospital performance.
Carol Propper is a Professor of Economics in the Department of Management and Imperial College Business School, London, where she is also currently the Associate Dean for Faculty and Research.
Her research interests focus on the impact of incentives on the quality of health care delivery and health system productivity and, more widely, on the design and consequences of incentives within the public sector and the boundary between the state and private markets.
Professor Propper is also a research fellow of CEPR, Europe’s network of leading economists, a Research Fellow of the Institute of Fiscal Studies, and has served on the ESRC Council, the Royal Economic Society Council and as Advisor to the Chief Executive of the NHS. Carol was awarded a CBE for her services to social science in 2010 and elected as a fellow of the British Academy in 2014.
