A warm welcome from the new 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. Its been a year like no other and we have loved getting to know you as our partners and stakeholders

Our work this year will help us deliver the People Plan and the Midlands Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy

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 a different approach and you will start to see new offers specifically targeted at different levels of staff. Listening to your feedback, this is what you told us you wanted us to do.

We know now more than ever that outstanding leaders inspire cultures of readiness and inclusion which improve the services, care and trust you 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. 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. 

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.

Non-urgent advice: Support Offer, Winter & Beyond E-book

No one can deny we are about to enter another period of intense activity across the whole health and care sector as winter approaches. Staff in all parts of the service are being called upon to continue providing exceptional care, often when they feel overwhelmed and exhausted.

The Midlands Leadership and Lifelong Learning team have produced an e-book to help guide you through our offers relative to your leadership level and needs. Click here to read it.

Annual Review 20/21

In this year we merged from the East Midlands Leadership Academy and the West Midlands Leadership Academy and we faced a pandemic that devastated the NHS.

Despite the challenges and the upheaval we feel we have succeeded in delivering Leadership Development courses, coaching and mentoring to the Midlands region.

We are the NHS: People Plan 2020/21
