As an organisation, we place great emphasis on being clinically led and improvement-focused. In recognition of this, we have designed a bespoke leadership development programme for our Consultants and senior clinicians, to help support them to develop the skills and behaviours to effectively lead teams and services.

The format of the programme will include talks and discussions with external guests, peer-group discussions, individual reflexivity and reading.

We’re delighted to announce that the programme will provide the opportunity to learn from the following healthcare leaders:

–          Dr Steve Swensen, Medical Director for leadership at the Mayo Clinic, US

–          Derek Feeley, Chief executive at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and previously Chief executive of NHS Scotland

–          Professor Michael West, Head of Thought Leadership at the King’s Fund

–          Dr Ruth Briel, senior clinical director at Tees, Esk & Wear Valleys NHS FT

–          Dr Brian Robson, medical director at Healthcare Improvement Scotland
