Primary Care Networks Clinical Director Coaching Programme 

This programme is being delivered in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ambitions of the recently published NHS People Plan.With a growing population and people living longer, often with long-term conditions, and health inequalities, the demand on local health services is ever-increasing. To meet this increased demand, Primary Care Networks [PCNs] are to become the building blocks to every Integrated Care System [ICS], allowing community, mental health, social care, hospital and voluntary services to work together to enable greater personalised, compassionate, inclusive, coordinated and integrated health and social care. This system will require a different way of working, different relationships and new roles for general practice and primary care.    

NHSE/I Lifelong Learning is providing a fully funded programme of 3 x 90-minute professional leadership coaching sessions, to support Clinical Directors [CDs] of PCNs in local Midlands systems. The coaching is provided by Beyond Coaching and their Leadership Coaches.  

You will need to commit to three virtual, 90-minute, one-to-one coaching sessions, to be started in mid-November completed by the end of February 2021.
