'Meet the fellows': Introducing the Welsh Clinical Leadership Training Fellows of 2019-2020

As the new cohort of Welsh Clinical Leadership Training Fellows (WCLTF) get stuck into their year-long quality improvement projects, find out more about each of these aspiring clinical leaders.

In the seventh year of the Welsh Clinical Leadership Training Fellowship (WCLTF) programme run by Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW), ten new fellows are developing their clinical leadership skills by taking on innovative healthcare projects.

The fellowship is a one year, out of training programme for doctors, dentists and, for the first time this year, pharmacists.

This unique opportunity provides fellows with training and hands-on experience in clinical leadership and management, ideally placing graduates to lead improvements in the delivery of healthcare in the future modern NHS.

This year’s cohort will be working with senior colleagues at healthcare organisations across Wales including HEIW, NHS Wales Informatics Service, South West Wales Cancer Centre, Welsh Government, Hywel Dda University Health Board and the General Medical Council.

Their projects will focus on improving important healthcare issues including trainee wellbeing, digital innovations, workforce strategies, clinical service pathways and more.

Applications for the 2020 – 2021 WCLTF will open between 31 October 2019 and 29 November 2019 and can be submitted via Oriel.
