In Kent, Surrey and Sussex, we support our health professionals by facilitating access to national leadership programmes and by providing our own, localised leadership programmes and networks.

The KSS Leadership Academy supports its leaders to think strategically and to work collaboratively with the aim of enabling stronger relationships within in teams, organisations and across traditional organisational boundaries. We also aim to develop leaders who can initiate change and have the ability to adapt to changing environments. This way we will ensure that services are able to respond to the region’s emerging healthcare needs and ultimately, the needs of our patients.

We are both a leadership delivery partner of the NHS Leadership Academy and the internal leadership and OD directorate of Health Education England working across Kent, Surrey & Sussex. In this role, we support the work of Health Education England's Kent, Surrey and Sussex Team in the training and education of our workforce consulting and advising on where their work touches on leadership.
