23. The solutions for the delivery of a new approach to leadership and talent management already exist within NHS Scotland - augmented, where necessary, by external expertise and different perspectives. Any review of the wider evidence base and literature (set out at Appendix 1) offers many models, conceptual frameworks and interventions. NHSScotland should determine its own approach, drawing upon and aggregating to national level what works well and then ensuring consistent application to defined levels of reliability. These arrangements recognise that, increasingly, senior leaders will be working together regionally and nationally as well as in their local health and social care systems. The overall approach set out in this paper will ensure that the new national level arrangements for leadership and talent management secure the ambitions of the Delivery Plan.
