Since becoming Chair of the Academy in April 2014, I have seen it go from strength to strength, delivering high quality training and development opportunities to NHS leaders and managers across the north east.

It’s core purpose is clear - to continuously develop our leaders and managers to maximise our capability and capacity to improve services to the patients and communities of the North East. 

I urge you to take advantage of the many opportunities outlined in this brochure to develop yourselves and your career throughout the NHS, and deliver the best in patient care.

Welcome from Clive Spencer

The Academy aims to develop the leadership capability and capacity of NHS leaders and managers and wider health and social care systems, and to improve services to the patients and communities across north east England.

We provide a range of development opportunities to staff in the north east including formal leadership programmes, coaching, master classes and leadership summits.
