Leadership Excellence

Provider CPD Points Duration
Academyst from eMedicus Ltd.61 Day

Leadership Excellence is designed to ensure that you have the knowledge, skills, principles and insight to lead services, projects and people in extremely difficult and increasingly risky conditions. Anything less than the right approach, applied well, increases personal, service and Trust vulnerability by undermining motivation, drive, engagement and morale, as well as resulting in inertia and a failure to achieve, transform or even stabilise. These are vital principles that often mark the difference between success and failure and yet still too many underestimate the importance of getting this right.


This programme is accompanied by three additional digital programmes, all in video-narrated form.


Leadership Fundamentals & Core Principals (9 CPD points and worth £110 + VAT)

Insights Learning Package  (normally £125.00)
To ensure you get the best from the course itself, we'll direct you to undertake specific sections of these programmes so that you turn up with a thorough understanding of the emerging context, including recent changes, as well as key baseline principles of leadership. The package lasts for 12 months though so you can deepen your understanding over time. It includes:
  • 12 Months on-demand access
  • 20+ hours of CPD (constantly growing)
  • Highest possible quality video- and audio-narrated slide presentations (mostly live captured)

Please note, allow 8 hours for this vital pre-course preparation for the programme you are attending, unless you have undertaken the programme before.



Creating Aligned, Shared Vision & Strategic Effectiveness (8 CPD points & worth £80 + VAT)

Leading Services In & Through a Crisis or Disaster (9 CPD points & worth £90 + VAT)


Going forward, we have made the decision to concentrate on our ever growing In House/Bespoke course delivery, rather than open courses. With ever greater financial pressures on Trusts, this allows us to deliver a lower per person cost, with no travel for delegates as an added bonus.

We are able to come into your trust and deliver highly cost-effective, first class training service to groups of typically between 8 – 20 delegates (larger numbers can be accommodated on request).  For 8 or more delegates, the in-house rate saves both Trust and individuals money, not to mention the time-saving from not having to travel. 

Most of our courses can be tailored to suit specific groups e.g. consultants, SAS doctors, allied healthcare professionals etc, or structured for mixed groups. We are also finding that 2 or 3 local trusts may join forces to put on a training course, allowing more attendees and thus lowering the cost per person still further.
