We know excellent leadership has a direct, positive impact on our staff and the patients and service users they engage with to deliver high quality care and improvement of health and wellbeing.
Our aim is to deliver outstanding leadership development, at all levels and across the healthcare workforce. We are operating in a world which is changing at a scale and pace and therefore it has never been more crucial to harness and maximise the leadership potential and talent we have across the health system.
Our vision is to deliver outstanding leadership development at every level of the NHS and across the healthcare workforce. Outstanding leadership creates cultures of compassion and inclusion that improves lives in local communities.
2016 saw the launch of Developing People: Improving Care, a national framework for action on improvement and leadership development in NHS-funded services. The Leadership Academy, and its local leadership academies are at the centre of delivery of this framework.
Our successful partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy strengthens this approach to ensure that leadership development and talent management are at the heart of our strategy for workforce development, and aligned with workforce planning, education commissioning and training and workforce transformation.
