The NHS North West Leadership Academy (NHS NWLA) empowers people in the North West to secure better health, care and wellbeing outcomes through leadership. Within the system and across diverse communities – we work to develop compassionate leaders and the conditions for inclusive, future focused leadership.

We are a member led NHS organisation operating since 2007. By operating a membership model we move in pace with our members, we are open to new approaches and engage with uncertainty together. By tracking developments on the horizon we help members gain a view ahead and through these partnerships we co-create informed, targeted leadership development support and interventions.
