Supporting your leadership journey...

Rosalind Franklin programme

15 November 2019


Applications for the next intake opened Monday 11 November with cohorts taking place across the country. Please visit the NHS Leadership Academy website or download the programme eBook to find out more.

The Rosalind Franklin programme is for clinicians or managers leading from the middle of health and care systems, aspiring to lead large and complex programmes, departments, services or systems of care. It aims to help shape middle level leaders’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours to help them become outstanding, compassionate and inclusive leaders, working at all levels across the health and care system, to help improve services for people who access them. The nine-month programme encourages participants to ask, and answer, fundamental questions that will support them to become an outstanding leader and leads to an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Senior Healthcare Leadership.

Since its launch in April 2019, over 300 participants have undertaken the programme, with the first two cohorts due to finish in February 2020.
