Our Partnership with AstraZeneca

Working together to unlock leadership potential in the NHS

We began our partnership with AstraZeneca in 2018, looking at tackling failings in diabetes care by developing the Primary Care Leadership programme. The reach and scale of the programme’s impact was outstanding and inspired us to develop new projects together that could potentially transform diabetes care. 

Primary Care Leadership

In 2019, our Primary Care Leadership courses helped over 70 professionals gain clear insights into who they are as leaders, where their strengths lie and how they might develop going forward.

These introductory leadership courses were transformational learning experiences, giving confidence to the participants and the direction to take action to improve their services, organisations and the world around them. 

Discovering Leadership

Based on the evaluation findings from the Primary Care Leadership courses and our extensive research into how leadership development in healthcare is evolving, we identified ways to deliver leadership development courses that are more diverse and inclusive, with a stronger focus on helping participants deliver impact on the ground. 

In 2020 we rebranded the Primary Care Leadership course to the ‘Discovering Leadership Programme'.  Thanks to our partnership with AstraZeneca, we were able to deliver two Discovering Leadership Programmes, with 50 participants completing the course.
