This paper evaluates a primary care triumvirate leadership programme from the perspectives of key stakeholders (General Practitioners, General Practice Nurses, Practice Managers, programme and practice colleagues); and to provide evidencedinformed recommendations for future primary care triumvirate healthcare leadership development. Kirkpatrick's Four/Five Levels of Evaluation Model was used as the evaluation approach. Data was collected by the use of face to face and telephone focus group interviews. Thematic analysis was used to generate themes relating to the four levels of Kirkpatrick's model. Findings show how adopting a primary care triumvirate leadership approach offers a promising platform for operationalising the contemporary collective and distributed approaches to leadership development. Future programmes could benefit further by adopting a multi-dimensional leadership development model. This would expose the primary care triumvirate leader to the evidence based Six 'E's' approach to leadership development (evaluate, examine, exposure, education, environment, experience).
