Midlands Leadership and Lifelong Learning Academy

Non-urgent advice: Welcome to our website

Dr Clare Price-Dowd – Head of Midlands Leadership & Lifelong Learning

A warm welcome from the Midlands Leadership and Lifelong Learning Team, part of NHS England and NHS Improvement. We have now been working across the Midlands region since April 2020 and our annual report details our work so far. We continue to work in turbulent times with talk of a new model for what is ‘business as usual’ and for us that continues to be supporting leaders and leadership development.

Our work continues to be centred on delivering the People Plan and the Midlands Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy as well as supporting the 11 Midlands Integrated Care Systems.

On our website you will find outstanding leadership development interventions and opportunities to harness and maximise your ability to influence transformational change across the health system. We refresh this based on need so please sign up for our newsletter. This year we are taking an approach, which aims to maximise the opportunities for access development. This year and into the future we will work closer than ever with our other regional teams so will be signposting to open access opportunities from other regions as well as our own. The digital environment makes this possible like never before. In addition there will be localised tailored support

We know now more than ever that outstanding leaders inspire cultures of compassion, authenticity and inclusion. This supports effective teamwork, which  in turn, improves the services, care and trust needed to provide to patients, service users and local communities. Our role is to provide opportunities for leadership development from our range of Executive Suite interventions, Primary Care offers, Coaching and Mentoring facilitation, Systems Leadership, the Graduate Management Training Scheme, Inclusion and much more. We are proud of our outstanding reputation for improving care, health and wellbeing through empowering you to maximise all leadership potential and talent.

We look forward to working with you and we welcome all enquiries.

Please go to our about us page for contact details for the team.
