Empowering change for positive transformation

20 December 2018

All NHS organisations continue to face change. The forthcoming NHS long-term plan will stress the need to accelerate the development of integrated care systems, changing the way services are commissioned and delivered in future.

Those organisations that prepare for change will be in a position not only to survive it but to get the best possible outcomes for their populations.

This session is designed to equip you to become a capable agent of change, increase your resilience and show you how to improve your chances of getting the best possible outcomes.

Change happens in everything we do. Some changes work while others can hit barriers that could have been avoided.

This workshop on 13 February in London, 28 March in Birmingham, 6 June in Manchester and 10 July in London will help you understand how you and other members of your team respond to change. It will also illustrate how the process of change can be a positive and empowering experience.
