For the past four years, Batley Avenue Health and Social Care (BAHS) PLC has received a rating of outstanding from its internal audit and CQC. There is a residential unit on the ground floor for 25 people and a dementia care unit on the first floor for 25 people.

Mrs Robertson was the unit Manager and her deputies were Miss Johnson and  Mrs Baktaria.

Between 9 -11 months ago all three senior managers had left for promotional positions and replacement for their positions was made quickly and all 3 staff have been in their new jobs six months ago.

Miss Jones, the manager is knowledgeable, deemed to be an expert in nursing practice seems unsure about her managerial and leadership style.

Miss Brent, one of the deputy has been practising for 20 years is set in her ways. She does not like change and is regarded as an autocratic manager. She tends to dismiss new ideas for service improvement and unwilling to take risk to try new initiatives.

Mr Baktu the other deputy is a man in his early thirties is enthusiastic about his role and likes trying and testing new ideas. He enjoy inspiring the junior staff and spent considerable time guiding and empowering staff.  He is regarded as critical thinker and someone with vision. When he is frustrated he has a tendency to criticise both Miss Jones and Miss Brent for their management and leadership style. Each of these 3 senior staff tended to define their role, their work and work activities from their perspectives.
