The Fellowship is open to NHS and partner organisation staff and others with a role in health and healthcare.
We also warmly welcome Fellows who are patients, carers, or members of the public passionate about changing healthcare.
Previous Fellows have been drawn from clinical (GP, surgeons, nurses, AHPs), managerial and research backgrounds working in the acute, community, social or primary care sectors across Northwest London.
WHAT OUR FELLOWS THINK
“I joined the Improvement Leader Fellowship as a duo to undertake a project seeking to capture support services available for staff from ethnic minority backgrounds. I am incredibly thankful for the wealth of knowledge I have gained in quality improvement, leadership and most importantly, self-development strategies. Our programme coordinators have been highly engaging and I look forward to attending our monthly workshops together. Needless to say, we have formed invaluable relationships with fellow peers and our wonderful project/life mentor!”

“The most powerful lesson has been that connecting with people with shared passions
and interests will always be worthwhile, even in this most difficult and unprecedented era.”

“[Our] journey was at all times supported by the NIHR ARC Improvement leadership facilitators. [The programme team] were experienced, knowledgeable, supportive, and understanding. Especially as we were challenged by Covid. Many Fellows at different times were pulled away… for operational reasons, redeployment or family illness.”
Consultant Midwife, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
"I was grateful for the NIHR ARC NWL team to give me this opportunity. The fellowship has helped me to find my confidence to be a decisive leader which was very important to manage this project. The fellowship has helped me to gain the trust of my team who worked with me on this project and make it possible. I was able to see their potential and was able to empower them to be the leader of their QI project."
