“ How much flexibility is there between streams? ”

How much flexibility is there between choosing streams if reaching final assessment stage. E.g. I chose policy and strategy as first place, and DHSC fast stream as second place. Are we able to choose specific streams at the final stage.

when you apply to the Scheme you apply to a first choice and on your application form you have space to indicate any other specialisms you would wish to be considered for.

Throughout your process you are applying to your first choice. At the end of the process if you are unsuccessful to your first choice but meet our benchmark and there are suitable vacancies in the other specialism we will discuss those options with you to see if there is the potential to move you into a different specialism


Whatever your future leadership ambitions are, the NHS offers a fantastic start with a variety of challenging placements in an organisation that is wholeheartedly determined to provide equal opportunities to all employees. Selection for the scheme is based solely on aptitude and ability to ensure we have the best leaders for the NHS.
