View our System Leadership page and see both regional and national approaches to supporting the North West.

The nationally developed brochure describes a way of approaching ‘System Leadership’ and aims to be the starting point of a conversation between the NHS North West Leadership Academy and those charged with bringing the Five Year Forward View (FYFV) into reality via the system, locality, place-based transformation work already in train in the North West, and more recently with the implementation of the Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs). The approach provides a framework and describes interventions to support the development of leadership capacity and capability for those working in the emerging landscape at multiple levels.

WE UNDERSTAND THE EVOLVING LEADERSHIP LANDSCAPE

The NHS North West Leadership Academy team horizon scan, systematically imagining the future and the leadership required in order to best plan a response to that future. It supports organisations to detect signals, identify trends and think more inventively about what the future might hold, enabling them to capitalise on opportunities and mitigate threats, planning leadership development interventions to support this.

WE USE OUR EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE TO DEVELOP FUTURE FOCUSED LEADERS ABLE TO REALISE THE AMBITIONS OF THE 5 YEAR FORWARD VIEW

The dynamic team of highly knowledgeable and experienced health, social care, educational, organisational and leadership development practitioners, commissioners and leaders that make up the NHS North West Leadership Academy team, pool their expertise to develop the most appropriate leadership development interventions – the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.

WE DEFINE THE LEADERSHIP REQUIRED TO DELIVER EFFECTIVE HEALTH AND CARE IN THE 21ST CENTURY IMPROVING POPULATION HEALTH

In defining the potential future and the leadership necessary, the NHS North West Leadership Academy articulates this and plans interventions to provoke new leadership thinking and supports member organisations to develop leaders across the system to meet new paradigms.

WE WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OTHER SECTORS TO DEVELOP LEADERS TO TRANSFORM THE FUTURE OF HEALTH AND CARE

NHS North West Leadership Academy work in partnership with other development bodies across the North West. Although each organisation has its own focus, many of the key agendas overlap and in planning and working together to deliver key activity and outcomes, assets will be shared, avoiding duplication of effort and ensuring resources are utilised to maximum effect.

WE PROVIDE BESPOKE, EFFECTIVE INTERVENTIONS WHICH MAKE BEST USE OF PUBLIC MONIES FOR OUR MEMBERS

The NHS North West Leadership Academy work with Development Providers, on their members behalf, to co-design the necessary leadership development interventions translating the presenting context and utilising their expertise to ensure that the end product delivers the key outcomes necessary to support and develop North West leaders. Through strong negotiation we always ensure best value for money whilst maintaining high quality.
