Welcome to our new NHS South East Leadership Academy website

Kent Surrey and Sussex and Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academies came together on 1st April 2020, forming the South East Leadership and Lifelong Learning Team. We are part of the wider national Leadership and Lifelong Learning function (NHS Leadership Academy) within the NHS England and Improvement People Directorate.
