Welcome to the new Centre for Leadership, Impact and Management in Bournemouth (CLiMB).  CLiMB is the primary focus for Bournemouth University support to leaders at all levels within health and social care.

Leaders throughout the health and social care system face significant challenges. Ever growing demand, high patient, user and carer expectations, constant scrutiny and the need to maintain current operations whilst moving to collaborate commissioning – all of which have to be achieved and within finite resources.

CLiMB is the primary focus for Bournemouth University’s support to leaders at all levels within health and social care. We are committed to helping achieve the best possible outcomes for the people of Dorset, Hampshire and beyond.

We are committed to helping leaders and organisations develop the skills and capacity they need to perform today and prepare for tomorrow. If you are interested in learning more about what we do and how we work, please feel free to get in touch.

We have a flexible team of knowledgeable academics, consultants and practitioners who are committed to researching health and social care leadership, developing and disseminating excellent practice, challenging and supporting individuals and organisations. Our team includes staff with considerable expertise in running academic programmes and learning events.
