Applications for Diabetes UK’s Leadership Programmes have opened.

A recruitment drive has launched for the charity’s 2019-2021 cohort of Clinical Champions, with applications now also being accepted for Tomorrow’s Leaders, Primary Care Leadership and the new Pharmacy Leaders programmes.

Dr Debbie Wake, Diabetes UK Clinical Champion, said: “The programme supports people in numerous different ways to be able to achieve things that they never thought they could in terms of diabetes care improvement.”

Clinical Champions Programme
The award-winning Diabetes UK Clinical Champions programme is a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to develop their personal leadership style and to learn new skills, which will help them to deliver a project to improve care in their area. This project will focus on an area of improvement that the Clinical Champion has identified as a pressing issue in their locality.

Clinical Champions get the following support:

  • Leadership training at the world-renowned Ashridge Business School
  • Peer support through Action Learning Sets
  • Improvement coaching from a dedicated Programme Manager
  • Media coverage to raise their profile
  • Ongoing support from Diabetes UK

Deadline for applications is 5pm on Wednesday, March 20. To find out more and apply, click here.
