Training, coaching and consultancy from Robert Varnam
Hello, I’m Dr Robert Varnam. I have spent the past 20 years leading change at local, national and international level, and supporting others to do the same. I am a GP (family physician) in inner city Manchester, and I’m passionate about unleashing the potential of primary care.
I have had the privilege of shaping national policy in the NHS in England over recent years, and have created a number of large scale innovation, improvement and leadership development programmes.
Most recently, as national Director of Primary Care Improvement at NHS England, I instituted arguably the world’s largest programmes of primary care improvement, supported by £2.4bn of investment and hands-on coaching for frontline teams in quality improvement and change leadership.
I’m passionate about unleashing the potential in teams and leaders, and love helping people use new insights and tools to help them innovate, improve and transform. I believe most leaders and teams have plenty of great ideas about WHAT to do, but it’s the HOW where things come unstuck. Since 2021 I have been working independently to provide hands-on support for strategy and change leadership.
Please get in touch today to discuss how I can help. I work with individuals, teams and systems, particularly in healthcare and the charity (NGO) sector.
I live in Manchester, UK, and am happy to connect with you wherever you are.
