ImageThe Mary Seacole programme is an innovative and inspirational leadership development programme from the NHS Leadership Academy. Specifically for those newly in or aspiring to be in a formal first time leadership role, the six-month-long programme has been exclusively designed and developed for people working in healthcare.

The programme provides the balance between learning the theory and putting it into practice, empowering you to turn your success into consistent team success and to champion compassionate patient care
