Primary Care Leadership Academy Programme 2020

January - July 2020, Leeds

This is a funded opportunity for aspiring and existing leaders to develop leadership skills whilst working in collaboration on a chosen project. The programme brings together three different health professionals from your practice including a Medic, Clinician and Manager (i.e. GP, Practice Nurse and Practice Manager), thus offering an innovative approach to enable multi-professional teams to learn and work together, delivering a positive impact for the individual, team, practice, and wider locality.

The programme is open to General Practice, Dental, Pharmacy and wider primary care teams who believe they will benefit from being part of the programme and who are ready to embrace organisational change. You will need to identify three multi-professional individuals from your practice organisation to attend (Medical, Clinical and Managerial – i.e. GP, Practice Nurse, Practice Manager or your equivalent).

Places are funded but this does not include costs relating to travel or backfill.
