Press Release:


Around 85 clinicians have just completed the first cohort of an exciting and innovative clinical leadership programme: The 2030 Programme.


These clinicians came together from a wide geographical area – from Gloucester in the south-west to Slough in the east and right down to Southampton – to develop competencies and connect leaders (current and future) across this large geography to learn some new leadership skills, from national experts and each other.

Some of the benefits of the programme design included the provision of:
• An opportunity to develop facilitated networks
• A safe space to share concerns and anxieties, both personal and professional
• Support for leaders to help them navigate a complex working environment
• An opportunity to discuss and explore succession planning: what might the role of CCG chairs be going forward and what skills will we need to deliver these roles?
• Strong and independent professional facilitation for leaders
• Access to a personal coach and 360 feedback
• Access to a wide range of national and international leaders and influencers who can help with experience and examples of how they have tackled challenges
This approach enabled delegates to hear what was being developed and used elsewhere, learn from the best in the world and then discuss amongst themselves how these skills and attributes could help locally with the challenges they face.
The participants were deliberately chosen for their mix of experience. They ranged from experienced chairs of CCGs to newly qualified GPs, as well as people just starting out on their leadership career.
This mix was an ideal opportunity for all to learn and share experiences and skills and was well received by the participants.
The programme consisted of five full-day events and two half-day learning sets where delegates were able to come together to learn from various specialists in different aspects of the NHS world, share experiences, and develop and hone leadership skills. The days covered a wide range of topics including change management and improvement, examples of other organisations going through change, generative listening skills, a RightCare introduction and information, as well as talks from international leads on primary care and senior military personnel.
The participants are continuing to lead system changes and mentor colleagues to become leaders in the future.

Presenting research and experience in clinical education at All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on health and the arts.

Fiona foundation for kids

The Fiona Foundation for Kids has been set up to care as if she were there. Fiona looked after many children who were in care, sharing her home and love for the moment of time they needed it most. This was either from the day they were born until they were adopted or when their own family could no longer offer them the care that they needed.

As a teacher working with young people with special needs she provided the education and inspiration they needed to flourish and reach their true potential. She wanted such help to be available to children everywhere particularly where life was really hard, somewhere where a little help could help mums and children stay together and help themselves. We are here to help make that happen and do what we can to help children across the world.
