Applications for the Rosalind Franklin programme now open!

Are you a clinical or non-clinical middle leader across health and care systems, aspiring to lead large and complex programmes, departments, services or systems of care?

Our Rosalind Franklin programme aims to help shape middle leaders’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours to help them become outstanding, compassionate and inclusive leaders, working at all levels across the health and care system, to help improve services for people who access them.

The programme will support participants to be outstanding innovators, leaders, and team-members. Evidence shows that outstanding leadership in health and care has four key aspects: compassion, inclusion, collaboration, and knowledge of improvement skills and how to apply them. It will encourage participants to ask, and answer, fundamental questions that will support them to become an outstanding leader.

The programme is nine months long and leads to an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Senior Healthcare Leadership.

Applications are now open. Please visit the NHS Leadership Academy website to find out more.
