The NHS Leadership Academy recently provided opportunities for local systems and organisations to bid for funding to support the development of innovative, inclusive and compassionate leadership.
The NHS North East Leadership Academy (NELA) received a number of applications for funding and five of these were shortlisted. Successful bids include projects targeting cross boundary leadership development, those targeting the leadership of change management and a patient leadership focused approach.
The In Place Leadership Innovation Fund offered grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 for organisations and systems working in new ways to develop leadership across their local health and care system.
The successful projects will be participating in a national evaluation of the funding and we look forward to sharing their successes here in 2018.
