New NHS clinical leader scheme open for applications

27 Apr 2021

Dietitians can now apply to the new NHS Regional Clinical Fellow Scheme in England.

Developed by NHS England and NHS Improvement and the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management, the scheme aims to provide aspiring clinical leaders with the skills and experience necessary for future system leadership roles.

The scheme is due to commence on 1 September 2021 and run for 12 months until 31 August 2022. The posts will be offered as a secondment opportunity, at less than full time (0.6WTE), and will see successful applicants leading key projects that contribute to regional and national priorities including the recovery, reset and implementation of learning from COVID-19.

This opportunity is open to dietitians and other AHPs who would like to gain experience of system leadership, transformation and service improvement. Applicants must hold full registration with a relevant professional body and be able to demonstrate experience at team leader level, equivalent to an NHS Band 7 role. Full information on eligibility requirements.

Applications must be made online, through the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management application portal. Make sure you have read the ‘Information Pack’ carefully before applying.

The deadline for applications is 4 May 2021 at 9am.
