As Head of Learning and Development at Hammersmith and Fulham Primary Care Trust, I commissioned Healthskills to deliver a leadership programme for 100 middle and senior managers, entitled Leading for Better Outcomes to reflect the focus on delivering meaningful outcomes to improve services across the trust.
Healthskills designed and delivered an excellent, bespoke programme and professionally managed the project from scoping through to evaluation. They were able to call upon a dedicated, experienced project team and a team of associate coaches and facilitators to ensure that the programme was well resourced and everything ran smoothly. In addition, they were responsive to feedback and had the flexibility to revise the programme as it evolved to meet our requirements. Our experience of working with Healthskills was so positive and their reputation was so strong that they were commissioned to do further work when the trust merged with two other trusts to form Central London Community Healthcare Foundation Trust.
I currently work for Macmillan Cancer Support and invited Healthskills to submit a tender to design and deliver a pilot patient leadership programme. The programme launched in May and evaluations and feedback so far have been excellent. I would wholeheartedly recommend Healthskills as a quality provider of management and leadership programmes for the health and social care sector.
