NHS Clinical Leadership Fellowship Programme

We are delighted to announce that Giles Arbon has been selected for the NHS Clinical Leadership Fellowship programme.

The NHS Clinical Leadership Fellowship programme is the only scheme designed for clinicians in all areas of the NHS across England. The programme supports the transformation of leadership capacity and capability across the NHS, and it offers a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills.

To be accepted onto the programme I had to undertake an online application form along with psychometric tests in verbal and mathematical reasoning. I then had to attend an interview at NHS North in Manchester, this was a very interesting experience and a good discussion was had regarding the role of small departments and services like clinical photography/illustration within the NHS.

Having left the interview with doubts about being successful I was delighted to receive notification I was, and look forward to starting the course on September the 7th, when I attend the opening conference and networking meeting with Andrew Lansley and David Nicholson.

I hope to use this to Nationally boost the profile of Clinical Photography/Illustration and show how we play a vital and necessary role in the patient pathway and care.
