Bevan Exemplars Programme

Changemakers transforming health and care from within

The Bevan Commission’s Exemplar Programme supports health and care professionals to take their great prudent healthcare ideas and translate them into practice. Our 12-month programme provides training and mentorship to inform thinking and develop skills so Exemplars can transform health and care services from within, having positive impacts on patient care, lived experiences, health outcomes and on service efficiency.

Bevan Exemplars are health and care staff from across Wales who are supported by the Bevan Commission to develop and test their own innovative ideas over a 12-month period. The Bevan Exemplar programme is open to anyone working in NHS Wales, Social Care Wales, Local Government or within Regional Partnership Boards. ​The Bevan Exemplar programme is kindly supported by the Health Boards and NHS Trusts across Wales.

We’ve transformed the patient experience and the models of care we provide in the hospital environment.
