New NHS leadership academy announced

PLANS have been unveiled for a national leadership academy to help NHS staff develop their skills as non-clinical managers.

Health secretary Andrew Lansley said the academy would give all staff an equal chance to develop the skills they need "to drive a truly world class NHS".

The move followed a report by health think tank the King’s Fund earlier this year which criticised the lack of involvement of doctors in management as "one of the defining weaknesses of the NHS over the decades".

King’s Fund chief executive Chris Ham welcomed the new academy as "a positive step".
