What is it?

The NHS Regional Clinical Leadership Fellow Scheme offers multi-professional clinicians with the opportunity to work in regional systems, leading improvement projects across clinical pathways, retaining a clinical role and increasing their leadership capabilities.

The scheme is open to the following professional groups that meet the essential eligibility requirements: dentists, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, healthcare scientists, allied health professionals and doctors (including public health specialty trainees from a background other than medicine and trust grade, staff grade or associate specialists). Full eligibility requirements can be found in the information pack.

How it works

Clinical Fellow will be based in NHS regional teams across England for 12 months from 1 September 2022 to 31 August 2023. Posts are less than full time (0.6FTE) and clinical fellows will lead on key projects that contribute to regional and national priorities including the recovery, reset and implementation of learning from Covid-19.

What it offers

The scheme offers clinicians the unique opportunity to work within NHS Regional Teams in England to gain experience of system leadership, transformation, and service improvement, which will equip them with the skills they need to lead within a complex and integrated NHS of the future.

The FMLM education programme supports leadership development and learning and will be facilitated across the fellowship period. In addition, on completion, fellows will join an active Alumni Scheme to support ongoing leadership development, access to additional opportunities and expanded networks.
