Leadership for Clinicians

All LeAD e-learning sessions have been updated to reflect changes in the NHS and issues facing clinicians working in today’s service.

Leadership for Clinicians: LeAD is an e-learning resource to support clinicians, of all professions, to develop an understanding of their role in contributing to the management and leadership of health care services. 


LeAD e-learning is designed to be used as part of a blended approach, providing the knowledge base to augment clinical practice, and leadership development opportunities and programmes.


LeAD provides over 60 short interactive e-learning sessions. LeAD sessions are grouped for ease of reference; however they are designed to stand alone to meet an individual’s development needs and interests, you can obtain a certificate of completion after each session. To support trainers and further development within the clinical context, additional material and further reading on the subject is included within the sessions.


LeAD sessions are available in two pathways, both have exactly the same sessions, however they are grouped differently. You can select either of the pathways.  


The NHS Leadership Academy has recognised the original work achieved by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and NHSIII in describing the leadership expectations for those working in clinical settings. Chief Professional Officers of NHS England endorsed the Medical / Clinical Leadership Competency Framework (MLCF/CLCF) and LeAD to address the knowledge required of clinicians.



For further information, additional support material and interviews, please see the supplementary pages on the left.
