This development paper presents a critical discourse analysis of leadership as a dialectical relational construct. In so doing, we draw upon a comparative-intensive case study of the implementation of the 1000 Lives+ national patient safety programme in NHS Wales, and direct empirical attention on the implementation and operationalisation of the World Health Organization’s Surgical Safety Checklist in the interprofessional arena of the operating theatre.
