General Practice Improvement Leader Programme
Having clinicians and managers with quality improvement skills is key to successful change. Free places are provided on the General Practice Improvement Leader training programme from NHS England’s Sustainable Improvement team. This is a successful personal development programme with small cohorts of up to 30 people to build confidence and skills for leading service redesign in your practice or federation.
The programme incorporates interactive training workshops, personal reading and reflection, and action learning as participants lead a change project in their own workplace. Participants gain new perspectives, skills and confidence in using improvement science in general practice, and leading colleagues and teams through change. The approach has been successful with general practice clinicians and managers of hugely varying experience (from GP registrars and newly appointed managers to very experienced staff).
