NHS Leadership Academy
The NHS Leadership Academy offers a range of resources and programmes to support individuals, organisations and local academies to develop leaders, celebrating and sharing where outstanding leadership makes a real difference.
The Academy’s philosophy is that great leadership development improves leadership behaviours and skills. Better leadership leads to better patient care, experience and outcomes.
