Bevan Fellows

Leading change and transformation across health and care

Bevan Fellows address and support local health needs, improve clinical practice and health outcomes via the practical application of the Prudent Healthcare Principles.

About the Bevan Fellows Programme

Bevan Fellows are health and care professionals, clinicians, managers, and doctors in training who want to influence and make a difference in leading change and transformation through their work. They help to bridge the gap between clinical services and academia by taking a practical and action based approach in leading and driving change supported by research, evidence, education and training to demonstrate impact.

Catalysing and demonstrating change and innovation is essential in supporting a dynamic and sustainable health and care system for the future. As a Fellow your insight and knowledge will contribute to the breadth and depth of knowledge of the Bevan Commission when providing strategic and policy advice to the Minister for Health and Social Services.

Bevan Fellows learn by doing – in doing so you contribute to creating new knowledge through your work that advances and informs new services, techniques, methods and approaches consistent with prudent health and care.

Bevan Fellows address and support local health needs, improve clinical practice and health outcomes via the practical application of the Prudent Healthcare Principles.

To find out when the next call for Bevan Fellows is open, please sign up to our monthly bulletin.

To support participation at the right level, there are two Fellows cohorts:

Bevan Fellows:

Bevan Fellows will normally inform practice or process development, often at local level, and within their speciality. They will usually be individuals who are early in their careers who are keen to explore opportunities to broaden their perspectives, work and thinking. Bevan Fellows will be seeking develop their portfolio of experiences, build their skills and capabilities, and looking to formalise their Continuous Professional Development.

Bevan Senior Fellows:

Bevan Senior Fellows will normally be more advanced in their careers, have cross-organisational or pan-Wales responsibilities and seek wider opportunities to influence and impact upon national, regional policy or strategy.
