Summary

Dr Patrick Marshall Profile

I’m current an academic at the University of Hull teaching on their MSc in Healthcare Leadership which focuses on global healthcare.

Formerly I was a senior lecturer in leadership in the Centre for Leadership in Health and Social Care, course leader for the MSc programme and the Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Practice in Organisational and Regional Change Leadership. I gained practical leadership experience in schools in the Midlands, Yorkshire and Hertfordshire. I was a headteacher for 10 years in a secondary school, during which time I completed my EdD, which explored how headteachers used reflective conversations to support, sustain and improve their leadership practice. I was Assistant Dean for Postgraduate Medical Education in Kent Surrey and Sussex and then for the University of Birmingham teaching in their medical school and on their MA Leadership in Healthcare for the NHS Leadership Academy.

My EdD on the reflective professional practice of head teachers in UK secondary schools was published as a book in 2016. My research interest is in the relationship of practice and academic theory in the context of professional reflection relating to performance and well-being. I am also interested in practice-based research, my doctorate was completed whilst I was still a practising head teacher.

Following ten years of headship, I became Academic Head of School of Leadership in a south coast deanery. Here I created an MA programme in leadership designed to address the practical reality of being a clinician in the NHS. This programme grew out of his work on a freestanding postgraduate module in leadership in clinical settings that I led. I have also supported senior clinicians to improve and benchmark their teaching, visiting them in their various clinical settings. I still run bespoke leadership workshops for NHS Trusts introducing clinical leadership and service improvement to junior, middle grade and senior clinicians and multi-disciplinary teams.

I also teach, assess and supervise doctoral students at Hallam and on the University of Hertfordshire's EdD programme. I currently teach on postgraduate and undergraduate programmes which focus on leadership, education, advancing practice and professional reflection.

I teach on a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes as well as training healthcare professionals in leadership and management.

Research interests

Specialist areas of interest

I am interested in professional reflection and how this can impact on leadership performance. I am especially interested in how professionals reflect together and how this affects leaders’ resilience and professional relationships. I am currently researching into the impact on leaders when their public sector organisations scapegoat them.
