The MDT Leadership Masterclass – Who is this for and when are the dates?


Cheshire and Merseyside Cancer Alliance has commissioned an external company, Prospect Business Consulting Ltd, ( to deliver a number of one day MDT Leadership Masterclasses for MDT Leads, Chairs and a nominated Specialist Nurse from each MDT. The course will also be offered to CQG leads, cancer clinical leads and SRG leads.  


This has been identified by the Cancer Alliance as an important priority for development, and is also in response to the recommendations contained in ‘Meeting Patients’ Needs – Improving the Effectiveness of Multidisciplinary Team Meetings in Cancer Services’- CRUK,  which includes training and development for MDT leaders. This will help you in achieving the recommendations and in working with the transformation proposed by the national team. 


Donna Bradshaw is the CEO of Prospect and her team will be designing and delivering the training and will be co-ordinating with the Cancer Alliance Team. Prospect delivered similar development for the Northern Cancer Alliance to excellent evaluation.

The aims of the training are to support MDT Chairs/Leads in:

·         Exploring the factors that impact upon MDT effectiveness – inside the MDT meeting and outside the MDT meeting

·         Understanding practical ways of improving team performance and excellence, including focus on patient perspective and experience

·         Reflecting upon your leadership style and improving confidence in your own ability to lead and work with others
