The CSP only accepts a small pool of candidates onto the course each year, with just 26 places in the 2018/19 cohort. All must demonstrate a high level of experience and desire to progress their leadership skills.
Will oversees the day-to-day running of the Central Lancashire Moving Well service in partnership with the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, and he completed the level 7 accredited module through the University of Central Lancashire.
He said: “The topics explored in the LDP help with key aspects of leadership such as decision making, managing change and coaching and mentoring. This will have a positive impact on the team I work with and will ultimately lead to improved patient care.”
The programme looks at building business awareness with a wider aim of benefiting service provision and developing a critical understanding of leadership styles and behaviours.
National Lead Clinician Nick Worth commented: “We are delighted that Will has passed the LDP; he has worked exceptionally hard to achieve this accolade and can feel extremely proud of his achievement. The skills he has developed will be hugely beneficial to the team in Central Lancashire and our wider business.”
