Features & Interviews

We publish interviews with health and care managers to explore their views and experiences on career development, policies and service delivery issues. And we produce a wide range of features – explaining the crucial contribution of managers in health and care delivery, and helping members to address challenges in their working lives. The listing below present all of our features in chronological order.  

Some features are produced regularly in standard formats, and have dedicated pages on this site. These include Managing Better Care, examining how managers and clinicians work together to improve services; Tipster, presenting practical advice on developing your career and tackling workplace problems; The Sharp End, in which working managers give their uncensored views on how government policy affects their work; Leading Edge, our straight-talking opinion column by MiP chief executive Jon RestellCasework stories, exploring how MiP has helped members with problems at work; and Legal Eye, setting out the key legal issues facing health and care managers.
