Course Founders

The HELM Course was the brainchild of Dr Chunda Sri-Chandana, (Deputy Clinical Director, Harrogate and District Foundation Trust) who along with Dr Sarah Sherliker (then a senior SpR, now a Consultant Anaesthetist) recognised the need for further training and experience in management and leadership in the final years of specialist training. With help and support from the Education Centre and the Board of Directors at Harrogate and District Foundation Trust, the pilot course was successfully held in April 2011 and has run twice a year since 2012, now co directed by Dr Sarah Sherliker and Dr Katherine Scott

The course benefits from an excellent faculty, all of whom are active clinical leaders and NHS management at Harrogate District Foundation Trust who share their experience of management in a successful NHS foundation trust.
