Strategic leadership Programme Cohort 7 (2021/22) Online **Fully Booked*

Register interest
  • Date: 16 Nov 2021 - 24 May 2022

This event is now fully booked.

Due to overwhelming demand we are currently working with the Westcott Group to try and arrange another cohort to start in early 2022. Please register interest to be kept informed.

The landscape for hospice leaders is complex and challenging. To meet these challenges, hospice leaders need a coherent story about the role of hospices in the future, the capacity to develop new systems of care and the ability to lead complex change.

Following on from the success of our first online programme, which has been highly evaluated, we have taken the decision to keep this programme as an online version that will take place over seven months and include several learning approaches including:

  • online masterclasses,
  • workshops and facilitated discussions
  • video podcasts
  • 1:1 coaching
  • Action Learning Sets 

What does the programme offer you?

The Strategic Leadership Programme will enable you to develop and apply contemporary leadership skills with huge relevance to the challenges and uncertainties of the times. 

  • It will help you clarify the role of hospices in the emerging world of integrated and devolved health and care systems.
  • It will support you in developing a powerful story about the role of the hospice in the future.
  • It will enable you to hone your personal leadership skills to effectively engage others in improving care.
  • It will strengthen your capacity to make change happen.

Through the programme, you will become part of a leadership community and wider network with the shared knowledge and skills to develop the local and national end of life landscape.


This is a bespoke programme created by Hospice UK and The Westcott Group.  The Westcott Group is a team of highly experienced consultants who combine extensive experience of leadership development, exceptional expertise in developing personal effectiveness and deep understanding of end of life care policy. All have worked extensively with healthcare leaders, organisations and  systems.
