Regional Leadership Academies
Local Leadership Academies offer a range of development opportunities designed to meet the needs of leaders at all levels. The focus of their offers is developed in collaboration with NHS leaders from all the service. The South West Leadership Academy works across the region to develop its leaders.
Over the last few years the NHS has been developing a more systematic and coordinated approach to finding and nurturing talented individuals at all levels in organisation and across the service. This approach is developing nationally, regionally and locally.
At a national level NHS England and NHS Improvement are developing a national approach to talent management through the People Plan to support the Long-Term Plan to develop a diverse and inclusive leadership community at all levels.
