Lancashire Teaching Hospitals has been awarded a national training award for its consultant leadership programmes.

The trust, which runs the Royal Preston and Chorley and South Ribble hospitals, won the best public sector programme category in the national Training Journal awards for its Consultant Leadership Development and Consultant Stretch Advanced Leadership Development 
programmes.

The masters level degree programme, validated by Liverpool John Moores University and delivered by the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals organisational development team, was developed to equip consultants with the skills necessary to take the lead and make a real difference to patients and staff.

The programmes comprises service improvement projects, development centres, personality testing and assessed coursework.

Louisa Graham, head of organisational development, said: “Clearly consultants are experts in their medical field, but many felt they lacked the leadership skills necessary to drive service improvements and effect significant change.

“We designed a challenging and fast paced programme to equip them with the skills and confidence to adopt a leadership role.”
