Designed for senior leaders embarking on their first NHS chief executive role, our programme provides peer support and an opportunity for new chief executives to come together to discuss key issues.
Cohorts meet bi-monthly for themed discussions and private roundtables with political and national leaders
Around 60 provider trust chief executives across six cohorts have taken part in the programme since it started in 2016. Cohorts of around 12 chief executives meet bi-monthly for themed discussions and private roundtables with political and national leaders. Each cohort lasts for two years.
The programme has led to a number of high-profile reports, such as The NHS After COVID-19: The Views of Provider Trust Chief Executives and The Best Job in the World?
We will be recruiting to further cohorts in autumn 2023 and will be reaching out to first-time chief executives in late 2022. If you are interested in taking part in the next cohort, please contact Daniel Reynolds.
