#132 - A Clinicians Perspective of Management with Florence Wilcock

#132 Florence Wilcock - A Clinicians Perspective of Management 

Today on the podcast I have the pleasure of speaking to Florence Wilcock who works within the NHS as a Consultant Obstetrician at Kingston Hospital, she is also the chair of the London maternity voices working group and hosts the Obs Pod Podcast.  I was listening to one of Florences’ episodes called “The Dark Side” which was around the dark side of Management and I wanted to have her as a guest to discuss the difficulties that we all can face. This will be a great episode for those Clinical Directors and Managers supporting Clinical Directors to understand how you can improve your working relationship and performance. 

Topics to listen out for; 

  • How Florence found herself as a Clinical Director 
  • Saying Yes & No 
  • Having great support in a PA 
  • Most proud of and most difficult. 
  • Managing difficult conversations. 
  • The importance of knowing how your service runs. 
  • Negative attitudes about management. 
  • Don’t be afraid of admitting you have limitations.
