North West Leadership Schools


The North West Leadership Schools (NWLS) are an initiative of Health Education England (North West).  Each year we run a series of free events, workshops and lectures with the aim of inspiring and developing leadership skills in medical and dental trainees.
NWLS has three regional sub-branches: Cheshire and Merseyside, Cumbria and Lancashire and Greater Manchester.  Each sub-branch is responsible for organising smaller “after work” events as well as working together across the region to deliver three large full day events. 

We are inviting doctors and dentists with an interest in leadership and management to join the North West Leadership NWLS committee.
We are looking for motivated, enthusiastic and hard-working doctors and dentists at all stages of training (F1-ST8) to help drive the school forward.
