Mentoring boost for hospital manager

A manager from Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has become one of six people from the East Midlands to secure a place on a national flagship scheme which helps NHS staff become tomorrow’s aspiring leaders.

Lee Radford, Deputy Director of Training, Education and Development at Sherwood Forest Hospitals, was recently allocated a place on the national Nye Bevan Leadership Programme.

He applied through the East Midlands Leadership Academy. Lee said: “Competition was fierce so I am honoured to have been chosen to attend this much coveted programme.

“My course starts in mid-October and I am looking forward to learning new skills and attending workshops hosted by leading experts in international healthcare and business development.

“All the knowledge and skills I acquire will then be applied to the workplace to improve the quality of patient care. The course will enable me to further develop the Trust’s leadership programme to enable leaders and managers to develop their potential.”

Lee said he will also work intensively with peers to challenge the existing systems of healthcare and seek innovative ways to deliver excellent patient care.

The Nye Bevan Programme was set up by internationally renowned business and academic experts: KPMG, Manchester Business School and University of Birmingham.

It was named after Nye Bevan who was a champion of social justice and assisted in the creation of the NHS.
