Quote / Testimonial:

“The programme gave me confidence in the way I worked, how I dealt with people and actioned things. It made me much more aware of the effect the team had on our patients and specifically how the way I communicated could make positive changes.”

Shona Jubb, Dispensary Manager/Technician, Dean and Smedley Pharmacists
Quote / Testimonial:

“I’d done lots of training before but the difference with Mary Seacole is that it allows you to go back into work the very next day and observe how things can change. It translates so well into the day job. I also found the cross-system learning element of it very valuable – you can mix with other people outside your own environment.”

Stephen Freer, Somerset Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAP) Team
Quote / Testimonial:

“It’s built my confidence in leading a project and leading others and myself to continue to learn new skills and push boundaries. When taking the lead, you develop a better understanding of others and your surroundings, especially political matters. I’m aware that I can’t change the capital P in political health matters, but I can look at the small p and prepare staff and service users better to deal with an ever-changing healthcare system.”
