Abstract

Increasing the number of hospital managers in the NHS is unlikely to improve hospital perforrmance. Miqdad Asaria, Alistair McGuire, and Andrew Street write that in public sectors hospitals where the management role is highly constrained, more is not better. What has been shown to improve hospital performance is improving management quality directly rather than trying to do so by increasing the number of managers.
