The strategic health authority has launched Leading for London, an 18 month programme which will fast-track top-level managers to become to chief executive roles in as little as three to five years.
The programme will recruit from a wide pool of talent and will be open to all clinical and non-clinical staff at Band 9 or equivalent, such as directors of nursing
It involves a range of coaching, mentoring, multi-disciplinary project work and one to one partnerships with executives.
The first cohort starts in spring next year. Candidates will be placed in trusts and private sector organisations across London.
