East Midlands Development Service

Who we are and what we do
The East Midlands Development Service is part of the East Midlands Leadership Academy (EMLA) which delivers leadership development interventions to health and social care staff across the region.

EMLA has built a reputation for developing award winning and highly acclaimed programmes which deliver impact and positive return on investment, ensuring that we get the very best from our NHS workforce.

The Development Service is an extension of the offer provided by EMLA, allowing organisations and systems to commission interventions that are bespoke to them, that speak their unique language and that operate entirely within their local context.

Working with you to address the challenge
Leaders in health and social care have never before faced such challenge. The system is increasingly complex, fast paced, pressured, demanding and relentless, requiring transformative, adaptive individuals who are able to influence, convene, enable and support their workforce across the boundaries of power where the delivery of compassionate patient care is paramount.

Across England, leaders and their teams in local health and care organisations are working in partnership to dissolve barriers between primary care services and hospitals, between physical and mental health, and between health and social care that will help to address the current challenges. Through Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) our leaders are striving to build local health and care systems where the shared aims of improving care for individuals, improving population health and well-being, and improving value for money come before all else.

Why work with us?
As an integral part of the NHS landscape, our team understands the importance of both organisational and system context, recognising that the culture, language and influencing factors from one locality to another are inherently different and that a one size fits all approach simply doesn’t work.

With a proven track record in working with acute, mental health and community providers as well as CCGs, STPs, ICPs, Local Authorities and social care organisations we are strategically placed to offer a holistic view of the NHS landscape and work with you to understand your current challenges and to co-produce effective interventions at individual, team, organisational and system level. 

Our vision…
‘To develop outstanding leadership at all levels of the NHS that creates cultures of compassion and inclusion that improves lives in local communities’

How will we work with you?
Working with a highly-skilled pool of experts we are now able to meet the growing demand from our stakeholders for bespoke interventions, whether at organisational or system level.

Following an initial enquiry, we will arrange to have a conversation with you  to fully understand your objectives, following which we will work with you to design an intervention bespoke to your needs and requirements and desired outcomes.

Outcomes will be measured using suitable metrics that are agreed during the initial consultation to ensure maximum return on investment.
