Future Nurse Leaders Workshop
Strong leadership is essential if the NHS is to meet the challenges of caring for an ageing population and a growing public health crisis. But this responsibility does not stop with chief executives and top consultants. At a time of increasingly scarce resources, it is more important than ever to develop effective leadership at every level of the NHS.
This one day course will equip nursing leaders with the skills they need to motivate others and manage the transition to a more patient-centred model of care. Delegates will gain a full understanding of how to create a positive organisational culture, how to successfully deliver improvements and how to recognise and nurture the talents of others.
You will return to work with a clear strategy for leading change that will benefit your fellow nurses, other NHS staff and patients.

The future of nursing must be centred on the values of compassion, whilst ensuring that nurses are able to maintain their competence, and become champions of care in hospitals and the community. Nurses are responsible for so much of what is positive of the NHS and beyond. They are experts who know best how the service can meet the needs of patients and their local communities.
Nurses are the heart of the NHS and other health services, in the community and in hospitals. They are central for everyone’s desire for compassionate, skilled care and are key to the establishment of close and mutually respectful relationships between staff and patient.
The emerging challenges in health and social care have profound implications for the way nurses practice, the shape of teams and services, and many aspects of management, education and development. These issues have continually received ongoing attention but even more needs to be done, as a matter of urgency. The renewed focus on high quality care puts nurses in pole position to improve health outcomes, the quality of care and the experiences of service users – and their expertise will be increasingly in demand as the need for skilled care grows.
Against a backdrop of unprecedented reform and an increasingly tough economic environment, most of the NHS and its workforce face constant pressure to continually deliver value for money and exceptional level of service to a patient population that has ever increasing levels of expectations and requirements. Whilst many within the NHS understand and deliver the basic necessities of traditional patient service practices, there are times when it has to deal with more challenging patient situations and patient behaviours that they are not necessarily accustomed to.
The NHS faces many challenges in transforming its culture as a result of the Francis Inquiry; challenges made even more difficult as a result of financial constraints. In short, nurse leaders need to be able to unlock potential, transform culture, and improve results across their organisation and workforce in order to deliver the aspirations of the NHS.
