The patient leaders programme will support patient leaders/emerging patient leaders to be effective and influential during participation and decision making about health and care services. The programme aims to enhance participants understanding of leadership behaviours, knowledge and skills and provide an opportunity for networking and share good practice. The programme will ideally equip the participants to be credible and effective leaders and who will champion and lead engagement in change/service improvement in their communities.
