The Strategic Leadership Programme

This dynamic and highly interactive programme is for hospice leaders with the desire and energy to make change happen.

Strategic Planning

It is suitable for hospice chief executives, senior managers and those who head up service delivery. The programme takes place over three intensive residential modules, totalling eight days.

This is a bespoke programme created by Hospice UK and our delivery partners The Westcott Group. The Westcott Group is a team of highly experienced consultants with extensive experience of leadership development, exceptional expertise in developing personal effectiveness and deep understanding of end of life care policy.

Since we launched the Strategic Leadership Programme in 2016, it has been highly evaluated by over 70 hospice leaders.
