NHS North East and Yorkshire Leadership Academy

Supporting your leadership journey...


Welcome from John Lawlor

Chair, NHS Leadership Academy North East


I became the Chair of the NHS Leadership Academy North East in August 2018 and am really excited to oversee the delivery of high quality training and development opportunities to NHS leaders and managers across the North East.

The Academy'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 on this website to develop yourselves and your career throughout the NHS, and deliver the best in patient care.

Welcome from Clive Spencer

Director, NHS North East Leadership Academy


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. 

You can learn more about these programmes and find full details about current opportunities here on our website.
