Abstract

In late 2019, Professor Matt Makin was facing the significant challenge of leading North Manchester General Hospital (NMGH) through a complex disaggregation process, as it left Pennine Acute NHS Trust and joined Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. This period of uncertainty was made yet more testing as the hospital had been earmarked as one of six hospitals destined for a complete rebuild and redevelopment, thus leading to significant management and leadership capacity being absorbed by strategic project planning. Moving into 2020, it soon became clear that a further challenge would require the full attention of leaders and managers across the health service. As the organisation with the regional centre for infectious diseases, North Manchester was looked to from the onset of the pandemic to provide support and advice to other acute providers across the region. In this short piece, Professor Makin describes some of the lessons learnt during this challenging time and describes how he dealt with the extraordinary pressures facing North Manchester services.
