Further development opportunities

NHSE Wessex aspires to help health and care professionals to be flexible, able to embrace change, develop vision, lead transformation, and embrace clinical and professional development. In addition to a wide range of courses, conferences and e-Learning, the following development opportunities are also available within Wessex:

Edward Jenner Programme

The Edward Jenner Programme should be the first port of call for anyone who is looking to build a strong foundation of leadership skills that can help enhance their confidence and competence in their role.


NHSE Wessex offers fantastic fellowship opportunities. Many fellowships are multi-professional, to enable fellows to benefit from working with a wide range of people across the region.

All fellowships encourage participants to focus on a particular area of interest – to develop their leadership, research and service improvement skills. Fellowships are highly prized and are awarded on merit.
