Lilly lecture 2021: leadership in a time of crisis

Since March 2020, our current and future medical leaders have faced big challenges and continue to achieve the impossible.  We are excited to celebrate medical leadership at our annual Lilly lecture and explore the lessons we have learnt. 

In this year's lecture you will hear from Mrs Fiona Noden, chief executive of Bolton NHS Foundation Trust.  Following Fiona's appointment at the very start of the pandemic, she will discuss her experiences, the challenges and learning as she led through the initial pandemic response and the subsequent three Bolton waves. 

The junior medical workforce has also stepped up during the pandemic, with trainees taking on leadership roles to bridge the gaps.  We'll hear from a member of our chief registrars programme, Dr Aaisha Saqib.  Aaisha will talk about her journey from a medical student in Pakistan to a junior doctor in England.  She will showcase the work that she undertook as an RCP chief registrar, share experiences from training as a junior doctor and discuss how we can facilitate and transcend hierarchies to inspire shared leadership during any stage of your career.
