Our Partnership with AstraZeneca

Astrazeneca logo

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 leadership programmes for healthcare professionals. 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 course helped over 70 professionals gain 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 direction to take action to improve their services, organisations and the world around them. 

Discovering Leadership

Based on evaluation of the Primary Care Leadership course 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. Discovering Leadership addresses the scale and complexity of the diabetes crisis by empowering emerging leaders to drive improvements in diabetes care.

AstraZeneca also continue to support us in other ways, for example through sponsorship of our Diabetes UK Professional Conference in 2022.
