What we do

FMLM works to professionalise medical leadership by setting and benchmarking against standards that are aligned with the General Medical Council’s Good Medical Practice and underpinned by Leadership and Leadership Development in Healthcare: The Evidence Base.


Since its inception, FMLM has played a key role in improving medical leadership across the United Kingdom. The strategic vision for 2017 – 2021 is to see and inspire excellence in medical leadership and drive continuous improvement in health and healthcare in the UK.

Our organisational goals are:

  • to work with partners and stakeholders in order to professionalise medical leadership and improve patient care
  • to build on FMLM’s strong and vibrant community of senior and aspiring medical leaders, ensuring that all members have access to benefits to support their leadership practice and potential
  • to ensure that FMLM is financially resilientsustainable and independent.

Our guiding principles are:

  • to advance the standards of medical leadership in order to promote better healthcare
  • to work with the health and social care sector to promote health and access to healthcare, irrespective of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, creed or religion
  • to advocate for its members and the wider medical and dental community
  • to seek, use and share evidence of best practice in medical leadership to deliver the best outcomes for patients and the wider population.
