#6 Leaders with Babies – Prof Dame Jane Dacre

Episode 6 – Prof Dame Jane Dacre

Prof Dame Jane Dacre - Leaders With Babies PodcastThis week Verena Hefti is joined by Consultant Rheumatologist and former President of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), Prof Dame Jane Dacre.

From working in one of the first-ever general medicine job shares to negotiating part-time work, in this insightful discussion, Prof Dame Dacre opens up about her experience juggling three small children with a very busy medical career. Including why hearing the words ‘no, you can’t’ only spurred her career on further.

There is also discussion on leadership and gender in the NHS, specifically Prof Dame Dacre’s most recent work leading the first and biggest gender pay gap review in the NHS.


This episode is kindly supported by the London Women’s Leadership Network at the NHS London Leadership Academy.
