To ensure that its services are the best they can be, the NHS in England established the NHS Leadership Academy to develop the skills of its leaders at all levels – from front line nursing and medical leaders to the most senior executives and board members.
KPMG has been selected by the NHS Leadership Academy to head an international consortium to design and deliver the programs that will develop as many as 10,000 NHS leaders over the next four years. The consortium includes leading talent from the healthcare practice of KPMG in the UK, and KPMG’s Global Healthcare Center of Excellence, as well as six leading international universities and online education experts, specialist healthcare organizations and the experience of some of the largest clients of KPMG firms around the world.
“We know that the quality of leadership has a direct effect on the quality of care patients receive every day,” said Karen Lynas, Deputy Managing Director of the NHS Leadership Academy. “We are delighted to be working with the KPMG-led consortium. Their global skills and experience will help NHS ensure the very highest level of leadership training for our professionals.”
Andrew Hine, KPMG Global Lead Partner for NHS, says “this work with the NHS is a great example of how KPMG helps clients to meet their most demanding challenges - to transform, innovate and structure their organizations to stay relevant and successful in a rapidly changing world.”
