Over the past nine years, Darzi Fellows in London have led major service improvements, implemented numerous safety and quality initiatives, and achieved substantial financial savings for trusts. Alongside patient benefits, the prestigious Darzi Fellowship programme has been shown to have a huge impact on Fellows and their sponsoring organisation.
Last year, for the first time, the programme moved beyond London and came to Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS). The first cohort of KSS Darzi Fellows embarked on their projects from April 2017.
Darzi Fellows come from multi-professional clinical backgrounds, including: doctors; nurses and midwives; allied health professionals; paramedics; dentists; healthcare scientists; and pharmacists. It is specifically aimed at those at a transition point in their career at the start of their leadership journey (e.g. ST4-6 or Band 7/8a). Darzi Fellows are supported by a bespoke leadership development programme with London South Bank University.
The programme is full-time for one year and the Fellows are expected to undertake one main project for their sponsor in addition to completing their leadership development programme (PG Cert) which helps inform their ability to lead on their project.
Applications for Sponsors of the second cohort of Darzi Fellows has now closed.
