The new NHS England Personalised Care Peer Leadership Development Programme is now open for enrolment! Following the success of the Peer Leadership Academies over the last 6 years, this new online programme is an exciting next step in Peer Leadership in personalised care. This innovative online personal development programme is for people with lived experience who are committed to working collaboratively with the system to shape and influence how personalised care is delivered. The programme is designed to equip people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to do this, by becoming a Peer Leader.

The journey to becoming a Peer Leader often begins with wanting to improve your own situation. So, the programme starts with ‘What is personalised care and how can people in England benefit’? It is delivered by NHS England in partnership with Future Learn, an accessible learning platform, and features real-life stories, group discussions and quizzes to mark progress.

To enrol on the Step One course which goes live on the 26th October 2020, please register here: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/peer-leadership-foundation-step-1
