60 more NHS clinical fellowships announced

The NHS National Leadership Council has announced that another 60 clinical fellows will be created this year as part of a drive to improve clinical leadership.

The fellowship programme aims to develop the next generation of leaders in many different clinical settings so that they can take a more central role in improving services for patients.

The new fellowships will:

  • Receive high quality on-the-job clinical leadership and management training underpinned by sharing best practice
  • Provide opportunities for all clinicians to have bespoke leadership development linked to service improvements
  • Promote multidisciplinary and collaborative learning across regions involving all healthcare professional groups and not just doctors
  • Design a robust evaluation on improvements to the service alongside personal development that will provide the benchmark for future leadership programmes
