Welcome to the East Midlands Leadership Academy
The East Midlands Leadership Academy is playing a key role in the NHS Midlands and East leadership development offer – we are pleased to be working alongside our colleagues in the East of England and West Midlands: sharing ideas, participating and leading cluster wide activities and offers.
The launch of the NHS Leadership Academy in April ensures that leadership remains on the agenda during a time of significant change, and the East Midlands Leadership Academy welcomes the profile, support and direction this national body will give.
We have now had 1492 people use the Academy’s offers on 2069 occasions since 1 April 2011 a real increase on this time last year. We have appointed an Associate to lead on the development of Clinical Commissioning Groups, Linda Garnett, and two Programme Lead's Anna O’Kane and Ed Tempest to support the delivery of our programme portfolio, we are also pleased to welcome Peter Pearson, Admin Assistant to our team.
From 1st May 2012 I will be on secondment to the new National Leadership Academy to support and develop the Inclusion agenda. This secondment is for six months and in my absence I would like to welcome Paul O’Neill from Nottinghamshire Healthcare as Interim Director. Paul has worked with the Academy previously and I am pleased that he has chosen to take on the role.
A message from our Interim Director - Paul O'Neill
I am really pleased to be taking on the role of Interim Director and look forward to working in collaboration
with our member organisations to continue to build on our leadership excellence across the region.
I am also delighted to share with you our new East Midlands Leadership Academy prospectus for 2012/13. The prospectus provides an overview of the main activities for the coming year which have been planned in collaboration with our member organisations. There are some ‘old favourites’ along with an exciting range of new initiatives. Please click on the link below to download the prospectus.
We will continue to engage with our members and co-produce further offerings throughout the year – so look out for addendums to this prospectus. I am pleased to say that the website is in the process of being updated and re-designed and will be re-launched shortly- so again watch out for an email alert in the coming weeks.

We continue to work with our colleagues across the SHA Cluster, in the East of England and West Midlands, and some of the offers in the prospectus and future offers are of a direct result of this collaboration. We are also busy working with the NHS Leadership Academy and we hope to become a Local Delivery Partner for the national Academy from next year, providing offers of national importance and relevance, but still retaining our strong local links and focus.
I hope you enjoy reading the prospectus and very much look forward to hearing from you and meeting with you over the coming months.
Interim Director, East Midlands Leadership Academy
