Leading Transformation of Health & Wellbeing Programme 2012/13
Are you equipped with the confidence, knowledge, skills and support to lead effectively in the new public health and wellbeing system?
The new national Leading Transformation of Health and Wellbeing 2012/13 is unique leadership development programme which brings together senior staff from a range of organisations to learn how to develop a model of shared leadership, working in a partnership environment to implement and deliver improvement of health and wellbeing in their local communities.
Durham University, supported by the Local Government Association, has designed and is delivering this programme as part of a portfolio of leadership for improvement programmes. Speakers on the programme include a wide range of national and international experts in the fields of health and wellbeing improvement, leadership, and improvement science, with personal coaching support.
Transformational change across the public sector is no longer an option. With significant changes underway in public health policy and practice affecting local government, the NHS, social sector and business, future leaders in health and wellbeing need new skills and understanding in order to survive and prosper. Major government policy changes affecting public services herald a new direction in which local communities take more control of their destiny. Together with initiatives like the 'Big Society' and the shift of Public Health back to Local Government, the public realm is being reshaped in potentially radical ways. New ways of encouraging people to take responsibility for their health are being devised; these will have a profound impact on the public's health and wellbeing. All this is happening when public services are being required to learn new ways of working in tough financial times.
The National Leading Transformation of Health and Wellbeing Programme aims to respond to this challenging agenda by developing leaders with the necessary knowledge and skills to improve health and wellbeing in a partnership environment, raising the quality of services and reducing health inequalities whilst ensuring a focus on value for money both locally and nationally.
We know that making a real difference to peoples' health and quality of life and reducing inequalities requires strong leadership from professionals in many different agencies working towards some common goals. We want to bring those senior people together and to help them develop the personal, leadership and quality improvement skills that they will need. We strongly believe that there is value in learning together. We think this programme will make a significant contribution to developing mutually supportive relationships across organisational boundaries, supporting the effective development of Clinical Commissioning Groups and Health and Wellbeing Boards.
This one year programme for a cohort of senior leaders commenced in September 2012. See schedule of dates below.
