The Rosalind Franklin Programme

What is this?

As part of their ongoing commitment to developing outstanding leadership at all levels of the NHS, the team leading the NHS England and NHS Improvement General Practice Nursing Ten-Point Plan had this programme commissioned - and since adapted and amended - to meet the needs of nurses working in middle-level positions within general practice and Primary Care settings.

In early 2017, research into available middle-level leadership training was conducted by Breaking Blue Research, with a further study carried out by Korn Ferry Hay Group between December 2017 and January 2018. The research findings highlighted a significant gap for middle-level leadership development. The Rosalind Franklin Programme, then, is meant to plug this gap with accessible, consistent, and affordable training.

Essentially, this programme is intended to help develop middle-level nursing leaders' knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviours, to ensure there are inclusive and compassionate nursing leaders working at all levels of the NHS; this is to help improve patient care, people's health, and their experiences of the NHS.

  • A step-by-step guide on how to use a number of quality-improvement tools and techniques, helping you to build the skills and confidence needed to implement change within your practice

  • An opportunity apply the aforementioned tools and techniques to a change challenge of your choice (something you really want to improve back at your practice)

  • Reflection and learning with like-minded colleagues from across the country
