NHS Leadership Academy
Our philosophy is simple – great leadership development improves leadership behaviours and skills. Better leadership leads to better patient care, experience and outcomes. Our purpose is to work with our partners to deliver excellent leadership across the NHS to have a direct impact on patient care. We offer a range of tools, models, programmes and expertise to support individuals, organisations and local partners to develop leaders, celebrating and sharing where outstanding leadership makes a real difference.

Seven day services: an evidence base of enablers for transformation
In January 2015 NHS Improving Quality commissioned an independent specialist to undertake research to identify and understand the enablers and barriers to transforming services to seven days, to shine a light on effective practices and what works well. The results are to be published later this year and a sneak preview later this month. NHS IQ is encouraging everyone working towards seven day services, at any stage, to take part in a short online survey to shed further light on what works very well and help identify barriers to success.

Health Education England - 15 Year Strategy 
The Health Education England Strategic Framework (‘Framework 15’) builds upon the Strategic Intent Document published in February 2013 and the feedback to that and the refresh published in July 2013.

Framework 15 is intended to act as a reference point for the system and provide the conceptual framework for how HEE approaches problems and identifies solutions, ensuring our focus remains on the patient.

It will:

  • Guide the decisions we make in the short term, such as the annual workforce planning process and the priorities in our Business Plan;
  • Inform our longer-term work programme, including taking forward The Shape of Training Review and piloting life-cycle workforce planning for children and young people;
  • Enable our board and the public to assess our actions against our expressed strategic ambitions, and to challenge us if we veer off course; and
  • Provide the basis for more detailed conversations with our partners and stakeholders about the challenges and opportunities ahead

Research Priorities - what are they and how do I do something about them?
LaMPS is keen to support members to undertake research and evaluations. Sometimes it can be daunting to know where to start. This page from the CSP main site shares the CSP priorities and takes you through how to develop a research question and potential avenues for funding.
In addition our colleagues in AHPRN have local hubs which may be able to support you.  See their webpage.
