About Dr. Caroline Marshall- MBBS (Lond); MRCP (Lond); FRCA (Lond):

Caroline studied medicine in London and tried a range of specialties before settling on anaesthesiology. She held consultant posts in liver transplantation and intensive care at the Royal Free Hospital in London, before moving to University Hospital Southampton (UHS) to specialise in hepatobiliary and neuroanaesthesiology.

Her interest in education led her to roles supporting trainees, which also led into coaching and mentoring training. Her first management post was as the lead of the critical care department and this was followed by a wider role managing several other medical specialties. She took the unusual step in 2014 of taking on the Chief Operating Officer post at UHS. This is a non-clinical role as part of the Executive management of the Trust, responsible for managing the everyday working of the hospital. After nearly six years in this job she is an enthusiastic advocate for clinicians becoming involved more closely in the operational running of a hospital and is able to give examples from her experience which have benefitted both patients but also working lives of clinicians. She can also provide some thoughts on the attributes and qualities which make this type of role more intuitive, and offer some thoughts on the types of (British) clinician mindset which tends not to be very productive at management meetings! An essential feature of this role is to understand both how the money is acquired by the hospital, and also how it is spent, and to ensure that the balance is positive; she has suggestions to offer for those clinicians who are interested in understanding more about financial operational management.
