“The Fellowship will help empower women from ethnic minority backgrounds to overcome career-related challenges, gain insight into different digital roles, support career progression, build positive relationships and self-confidence.“
Cheryl Scott, Industry and Innovation Lead

The Shuri Network’s ground-breaking programme with NHS England and NENC ICB has had a hugely positive impact, created a generation of new digital leaders and innovators and has inspired other digital leadership programmes. They will be opening applications for our 4th Cohort of Fellowships for our members who work in the NHS and social care in late May/ early June and running a series of webinars for prospective applicants. This year the Fellowship is open to all NHS professional groups including AHPs, paramedics, informatics staff, nurses as well as several places for social care professionals. You can also hear more about the Fellowship from the team and alumni on our Shuri podcast here.

The transformational programme is part-time, will run from September 2024 to May 2025 and includes coaching sessions, educational meetings, peer support and unique opportunities to connect with digital and healthcare leaders. There will be sessions from digital and data experts to increase your knowledge and understanding of digital topics, innovation and implementation of change.
