Associate Medical Director for Quality Improvement and Clinical Transformation at St George’s, Dr Mark Hamilton, has been selected for the Health Foundation’s GenerationQ leadership programme.

He is one of 18 senior health care professionals in the UK to join the prestigious fellowship, designed to develop a new generation of skilled and effective leaders in health care.

GenerationQ equips senior leaders in health care practice, policy and the charity sector with the skills to drive forward and influence improvements across health care services and organisations.

The programme is delivered over the course of 18 months and equips participants to confront the main challenges facing health and health care leaders today, and to put into practice a significant improvement project in their organisation.

Professor Andy Rhodes, Medical Director at St George’s, said: “I’m delighted Mark has been chosen to join the GenerationQ programme. The fellowship will see him further develop his leadership skills and we’re all looking forward to seeing how he can put this learning into practice and propose innovative new improvements we can make at the Trust.”
