Turning to global experts for the incredible content and to you for the ambition, compassion and drive to continue improving our healthcare system for the benefit of those that matter the most – our patients.

We are here as your Local Leadership Academy to support access to the national leadership programmes for health and care staff at all levels across our region.

Stepping Up Programme

The Stepping Up programme is a leadership development programme for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) colleagues who work within healthcare (the NHS or an organisation providing NHS care). It aims to create greater levels of sustainable inclusion within the NHS by addressing the social, organisational and psychological barriers restricting BAME colleagues from progressing.

Rosalind Franklin Programme

This nine month programme aims to help shape the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours of clinical or non-clinical mid-level leaders to help them become outstanding leaders, and for the NHS to develop inclusive and compassionate leaders working at all levels across the NHS to help improve patient care, people’s health and their experiences of the NHS. It is aimed at mid-level clinical or non-clinical leaders aspiring to lead large and complex programmes, departments, services or systems of care.

This programme aims to equip those in mid-level leadership positions with the confidence to drive lasting change and improve the patient experience.

The focus is on increasing resilience to meet the demands of working in high-pressured healthcare environments.
