To support colleagues through CCG and ICS transitions, the NHS North West Leadership Academy have created a range of useful resources for NHS leaders.
We are working with colleagues both within the region and nationally, including the NW People Team, to ensure there is ongoing, relevant support available for your teams which will underpin our aspiration to look after our people.
Regardless of our backgrounds and current circumstance, uncertainty and ambiguity during transition periods can impact us personally on a variety of levels. At the NHS North West Leadership Academy, our aim is always to support leaders by providing helpful and practical interventions that assist with real world challenges.
We’ve curated and categorised support which can be tailored to help provide you with support both now and into the medium and longer term.
A range of expert and personalised 121 support offers are available for CCG leaders during transition. Find out more >>
