GP Leadership Grants
We recognise that leadership skills are fundamental to the positive growth and performance of all organisations, and good leaders are able to motivate, support and retain staff, which for general practice, means a more consistent provision of care to our patients.
We are delighted to offer a grant towards a programme of leadership study for current or new leaders within practices and PCN’s.
