Commissioned by the School for Social Entrepreneurs.
This evaluation examined the impacts of support to leaders of spin outs from the National Health Service, part of the Department of Health's Right to Request policy. The support was provided to 17 leaders of spin outs who attended 6 two day residential sessions, hearing from expert witnesses drawn from those with experience of the area, and through group discussions in action learning sets. The evaluation found that the support had important positive impacts on all those attending and supported the process of spinning out from the public sector. Recommendations are made concerning the programme design and how it can be developed in the future.
