Leadership Learning

Here at Health Education England working across the North East and North Cumbria we aim to facilitate all doctors in training to reach their full potential in all areas, including the generic professional skill of leadership.

NHS Improvements 'Developing People – Improving Care' (2016) has highlighted the link between leadership and quality improvement and recommended compassion and inclusivity in clinical leadership, encouraging leadership training for all as a core skill.

With the publication of the GMC’s 'Generic Professional Capabilities' (2017), the leadership capabilities that are common to all doctors across all specialties have been described, with the expectation that these leadership capabilities will be embedded in all curricula.

Health Education England's strategy 'Leadership development for doctors in postgraduate medical training' (2017) sees clinical leadership as a responsibility of all doctors and our leadership strategy for doctors in postgraduate training aims to position leadership and management in the mainstream.

We aim to support all our doctors in training in their personal leadership journey, delivering a tiered learning approach, working towards independent practice.

Essential tools for the job: why physicians need to improve medical leadership and management

Given the current workforce and financial issues facing the NHS, should physicians just concentrate on seeing as many patients as they can, as quickly as they can? Professor Namita Kumar says perhaps not.
