This annual lecture marks the contribution of Professor Teddy Chester, who was the first professor of social administration at the University of Manchester. From his appointment in the early 1950s, to his retirement in the 1970s he was an influential pioneer in management development, using evidence and research with policy makers, and working with clinical leaders. He was involved in founding the Health Services Management Unit in 1956, in setting up the NHS Graduate Training Scheme, and in founding Manchester Business School.
The year 2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the Healthcare Management Group at the University of Manchester, and its longstanding contribution to healthcare management education, development, analysis and research in the UK and internationally.
