Leadership development

In partnership with NHS Clinical Commissioners, we co-deliver leadership events for political and clinical leaders in care, health and wellbeing. These provide an opportunity to learn from each other and share experiences, using the LGA's tried and tested approach to leadership development.


Following the national COVID-19 health emergency and its widespread and far reaching impact across communities, we are refocusing the proposed improvement support for local leaders of health, wellbeing and care as we now move into the next phases across summer and autumn.

The health and care political and clinical leadership offer

We are starting to reframe our support offer to fit the new circumstances, but what is clear at this stage is that we need to support local leaders of place to build on the strength of communities that we have witnessed in this emergency and reshape approaches to supporting the vulnerable and tackle health inequalities that COVID-19 has also brought to the fore. Our leadership offer is aimed at:

  • HWB chairs/co-chairs
  • HWB vice chairs
  • council leaders
  • CCG chairs
  • Lead political role/chair in an NHS partnership or Devo arrangement
  • portfolio-holders/lead members with responsibility for adult social care
  • portfolio-holders/lead members for public health
