Primary Care Network Leadership Development Programme – Cohort 3


The Long-Term Plan within the NHS has called for the integration of Primary Care and the evolution of Primary Care Networks across the region. The development of these is happening at a pace throughout but it has been identified that one of the key development areas for key members of these networks is the development of their leadership and management thinking. To this end we have commissioned a programme sourced through the NHS Leadership Academy designed to support leaders in developing their leadership thinking and to provide practical assistance in managing change, creating culture and integrating high performing teams.

The course is designed to run over a series of 5 virtual workshops to be held throughout March and April. The programme is further supported by access to a Learning Portal which will provide access to a wide range of tools and learning which will assist the delegate in establishing, developing, and driving a thriving PCN. The programme is suitable for Clinical Directors, Board Members, GP’s, Dentists, Pharmacists and ARRS roles.

Delegates joining the programme will:

  • Have a clear understanding of the senior leaders’ role in overall leadership and effective management of the organisation
  • Understand how to inspire, influence, and build a high performing and effective team
  • Be equipped with strategic leadership and management skills to enhance team performance
  • Deepen your understanding of how to engage others and deliver change
  • Enhance and develop your personal network of healthcare leaders
  • Develop your self awareness and emotional intelligence
  • Improve communication throughout the network
  • Understand your role in developing others

The programme is highly engaging, practical and relevant. Delegates will have the opportunity to work on an improvement project of their choice, benefitting from the support of the wider group.

The programme itself is being delivered by Votive Leadership Development Consultancy, an external organisation who bring a broad breadth and depth of experience in helping teams and organisations to manage change and create high performing teams. They are members of the national NHS Leadership Academy and are well versed in the unique challenges facing Primary Care at this present time.
