Patient Leadership

Leading for Change Programme

The Leading For Change leadership programme is for patients and public and those NHS staff who are engaged in managing patient and public involvement.  It is a four day programme run by the Citizens’ Senate  and the King’s Fund.  It is focused on updating existing skills and developing new skills in order to enable effective partnership with Health Professionals.  A fundamental element of this programme is a willingness to work collaboratively and strategically with the system.  The programme content will help gain confidence to engage in conversations and to improve relationship building and influencing skills.  

Key aims:

·      To support capability and confidence and influence decisions in ICSs and Healthcare Partnerships

·      Build on confidence and knowledge to enable effective engagement

·      Make change happen in our heath and care system
