Wavelength

What is the Wavelength Programme?

Wavelength is a 5-month leadership programme to develop the skills, mindset, knowledge and relationships that support effective, joined up digital transformation across the Frimley Health and Care Integrated Care System (ICS).

Technology is transforming the world we live in. The leadership of digital transformation and enablement is enhancing the quality and safety of care, reducing inequalities and improving health outcomes for our population.

In 2018 we launched Wavelength, – a new, innovative leadership programme to bring together clinical, operational and digital staff from across the Frimley Health and Care ICS to develop the leadership required to harness the power of digital for better health and care outcomes.

We recognise that by developing our people as system leaders and applying this leadership to digital transformation, we will be better placed to achieve our ambitions as an Integrated Care System.


Can I take part?

Yes! We are looking for a truly diverse mix of participants to join the programme. By this we mean a balance of:

  • Cross functional—frontline clinical, operational and digital staff.
  • Cross system/cross geography representation—providers, commissioners, community, local authorities and ambulance services from across the Frimley Health and Care ICS.
  • Cross hierarchical—senior and junior, those with 30 years’ experience of working in the health and care sector and those with 3 months.

We’re looking for digital novices as much as those that are digitally savvy. You do not need any digital experience.

Ultimately if you’re excited about your own personal development, building your network, and exploring how technology can deliver better health and care outcomes, then we would love to hear from you!

What can I expect?

The programme consists of a 2-day launch event, followed by 3 1-day events and a 90 min Action Learning Set focused on a real-world issue from your day job.

Participants can expect a dynamic mix of engaging and interactive sessions including; keynote speakers, practical workshops, small group conversations, group work on live system challenges, face to face or virtual visits to leading organisations in the digital space and lots more.

What our Wavelengthers are saying:

“Not like any other ‘training’ programme I have attended. Started as medley of strangers and ended up as a network of true collaborators with a better understanding of each other’s’ worlds.” 

“Fantastic way to broaden my horizons on the integrated care system and impact of digital transformation!” 

“If you are looking for a digital leadership programme which puts people at heart of the digital transformation journey, that helps build a trusted network of passionate colleagues, delivers real world insights and supports you to learn the tools, techniques and mindset needed to bring your digital vision to life to benefit your patients and the people who care for them. Then I would have no hesitation in recommending the Wavelengths Digital Leadership Programme.”
