NHS Leadership Academy Elizabeth Garrett Anderson programme, 2018

Dear Staff Network member,

we would like to draw your attention to the following opportunity.  Please pass on as appropriate.  Thank you.


“NHS Leadership Academy

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson programme

If, as a mid to senior-level leader, you’re aspiring to take on a more senior role while, at the same time, looking to have a wider impact by leading a culture of compassion, then this programme, inspired by the inspirational and visionary leader Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, is ideal for you. It will equip you with the confidence to challenge the status quo and drive real and lasting change to improve the patient experience.

The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson programme is a unique healthcare leadership programme. The world-class provider mix of internationally renowned healthcare, business and academic experts brings with it a comprehensive perspective. Our part-residential programme allows cohorts of participants to develop together, to draw upon one another’s experiences and build bonds that they can take into their careers.

Above all, the focus is on helping you to become more resilient and able to meet the demands of working in often high-pressured healthcare environments so that patients see improved outcomes and experiences.

The programme is fully accredited, leading to an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Senior Healthcare Leadership and a Masters in Healthcare Leadership.

To this end, we now have a bursary scheme to support talented applicants who are from groups under-represented across leadership levels and whom, without the bursary, would otherwise miss out on opportunities to access the excellent quality professional leadership programmes that the Academy offer. Specifically, the scheme is available to individuals of the following groups;

•         BAME

•         People with disabilities

•         LGBT+

Applications for the programme are open until 16 November 2018.”
