Patients as leaders

Patient leaders are people from a wide range of backgrounds and include service users, patients and carers. They are people with the desire, drive, knowledge and skill to lead change in our health and care sectors to ensure that patients have a voice and a choice in how services are delivered. They are often involved in a wide variety of activities such as a local community leader, charity leader or Trust member.

This one-day workshop will provide you with a strong understanding of how to harness patient leadership to improve the services your organisation provides.
