Congratulations to Jess Hackshaw, Matron on LSICC, on graduating from the NCL Systems Leaders Nursing and Midwifery Fellowship.

Jess said: "I was asked to go on the course by Louise Morton and Mercy Wasike, one of the agreements to do the course was that you had Chief Nurse support to attend, I applied and was successful. The fellowship was put together by Chris Caldwell – Chief Nurse for NCL ICB. There were 22 of us on it, ranging from those working in Acute Trusts, specialised Trusts, mental health trusts, primary care, paediatrics and midwifery. Throughout the course we met with senior leaders from within NCL- including Mercy, who shared their experiences and career pathways- the course was about integrated working, supporting & learning from each other, developing systems leadership skills, and influencing change. The course was fantastic, I learned loads and met some incredible leaders and peers. I would highly recommend the fellowship."

The Fellowship is a system leadership programme tailored to attendees' needs, consisting of action learning sets, 1-1 coaching and leading on a system project over the next 6 months, giving them exposure to system leaders and sight of the types of work we undertake within NCL.

The photos show Jess with the course leads from the celebration event and receiving her certificate from Louise Morton, RNOH Chief Nurse.
