Rene WiednerRene Wiedner has been studying how managers within the NHS adapt to large-scale reforms and how their behaviour may contribute to the emergence of unintended organisational consequences. Specifically, he has used qualitative methods to trace in detail how health care contract management (also known as 'commissioning') has evolved following the transition of responsibilities from public sector managers to clinical commissioning groups. Additionally, he has examined how resetting formal organisational boundaries in the NHS may trigger responses that can have detrimental consequences for the provision of local healthcare services. This research is partly sponsored by the NIHR Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health and Care (CLAHRC).
