Leadership Programmes for Leaders in Primary Care


As the nature of primary care evolves to bring closer collaborative working between primary, community and social care through the Primary Care Networks (PCNs), so too do the demands on local leaders to work differently. We work with local partners to offer leadership development opportunities to those working within primary care.

For Individuals: Senior Leaders

Our Senior Leadership Development Programme consists of three stand-alone modules, Leading Self, Leading Others and Leading Systems. The programme is open to GPs and those working at 8a or above from a Nursing, AHP or Managerial background. Modules run on a rolling basis throughout the year.

For CCGs: Emerging Leaders

As part of UCLPartners’ Leadership Development Programme for Emerging Leaders in Primary Care, we deliver two modules, a three day module ‘Awareness of Self and Impact on Others’ delivered as individual days over 2 months, and an evening session on ‘Leading Change.’

For Primary Care Networks

We’ve been working to develop leadership within local Neighbourhood Boards as they’ve worked towards becoming Primary Care Networks over the past year across West Essex.
