In the NHS, effective leadership and teamwork are essential for delivering high-quality patient care. When healthcare professionals work together, it not only improves efficiency and collaboration, but helps create a happier workplace, boost job satisfaction and reduce burnout.
That’s according to the latest STATT Course Impact Report from Take Point Training, in partnership with the NHS.
By sharing our specialist military experience in building exceptional leaders and high-performing teams, we equip healthcare professionals with the right tools they need for their role.
This report is based on a sample survey of healthcare professionals who participated in The STATT Course during 2023.
The STATT Course Self • Teams • Team of Teams (STATT)
The STATT Course is a unique 3-day personal and professional development programme for NHS clinical and non-clinical staff.
From nurses, midwives and matrons to managers, physiotherapists and dieticians, the course offers professionals from every department the chance to build leadership and team cohesion.
Delivered off-site in a safe and time-protected environment, the course blends proven military principles with the latest leadership concepts, to help build high-performing leaders and teams.

Teams: the key to high-performing teams using collaboration, open communication, mutual trust and respect.
Team of Teams: how organisations transform into a unified, agile unit with a common language and shared purpose.
