Working Group: Leadership Professional Passport

If you are interested in being involved with the development of learning materials or being part of a focus group, please get in contact.

The Learning & Innovation team at RCS England are launching a project to develop a Leadership Professional Passport, to guide surgeons throughout all the stages of their career. Offering a flexible approach to learning, the passport would aim to broaden the reach of leadership material to surgeons.

The passport will focus on the key areas encountered by surgeons in different the environments they are engaged in including, but not restricted to:

  • Stakeholder management
  • Communication skills
  • Leading a team
  • Leading at senior levels

The passport will support learners throughout their surgical career allowing them to customise their learning, meeting their continuing professional development needs at each stage. The passport will represent a new and different way of learning rather than the traditional approach adopted in the past, with the view to expand beyond leadership in the future.

This is an exciting opportunity to create and influence a brand new series of products, which will develop surgeons to be better equipped to deal with the challenges of the modern NHS.

The project will be led by Miss Ginny Bowbrick, Consultant Vascular Surgeon at Medway NHS Foundation Trust.

To ensure the passport and the materials we develop meet the needs of surgeons at different stages in their career, we are seeking volunteers from a range of backgrounds, with a strong interest in leadership and/or education including:

  • More experienced consultants (+ 5 years)
  • New consultants (first 5 years)
  • SAS doctors
  • ST3-8
  • Core trainee ST1/2 CST 1/2
  • Surgical Care Team

This is a voluntary position, but full expenses will be paid. As a working group member, you will be asked to attend working group meetings and you may be asked to help produce learning materials outside these meetings. Due to COVID-19, initial meetings will take place virtually.

We welcome volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. We are keen to build a working group that represents the diversity of people who work in surgery

To apply to be part of the working group, please send a covering statement explaining why you would like to be part of the project and the experience you can bring to

Both Timothy Lowe and Ginny Bowbrick are available for informal discussions prior to applying if preferred.
