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.Read more
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.
