NHS Foundation Trust Strategic Financial Leadership Alumni Programme

Cass Business School, City University London

This highly interactive three-day development programme is provided as a follow-up for NHS directors who have already completed the Cass NHS Strategic Financial Leadership, NHS Non-Executive Directors, NHS Executive Directors or NHS Commercial Directors Programme. It is designed to provide continued support and development to directors in today's challenging health care environment. It seeks to engage participants in processes aimed at both mind-set change and achieving transformation change, and continuing the personal development of appropriate skill sets.

NHS foundation trusts currently face unprecedented financial challenges, both in the context of the economic conditions since 2010, but also in the context of ongoing reform. The drive to rethink and reconfigure services is a key implementation and presents real opportunities to those trusts that can develop a financial strategy, designed to leverage gains for services to patients. This programme is designed to help participants tackle these challenges.

The Cass programme is distinctive in three ways: Firstly, it is based on an interactive design which concentrates on the real life challenges NHS directors are faced with; secondly, it allows participants to develop their leadership skills, thus contributing to the building of change within NHS organisations; and thirdly, it has been designed and will be delivered by a team of Cass faculty and industry practitioners from a consortium of partner organisations, all with extensive experience in leadership development interventions and in working with the NHS.
