We work with clinical leaders, including doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, at all stages in their careers. Evidence shows that clinical engagement is clearly linked to better outcomes and better care for patients. We believe that clinical leadership and engagement need to be a priority right across the NHS.
Our research shows the importance of engaging clinical staff and developing their leadership capability throughout an organisation – as well as highlighting how difficult this can often be and how these challenges can be overcome.
We support clinicians to develop their capacity to influence change within their organisation, increase their confidence and resilience as leaders, and to balance the complex range of responsibilities demanded of them.
