Case study: Leadership programme for senior clinicians

Medical Pay

In this new case study from Blackpool Teaching Hospitals we learn how a leadership and development programme for newly-appointed senior doctors has increased their skills and knowledge and had a positive impact on patient care. 

The programme, which has been running successfully since its introduction in 2015, is now part of mandatory training for all new specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctors and consultants.

It has a focus on enabling senior clinicians to understand the trust and their role, as well as the current financial climate.

Some key areas to the program are:

  • maintaining high levels of performance
  • working effectively with others to achieve a positive outcome
  • delivering high levels of quality patient care within budget
  • the senior doctor as leader and change agent.
