North West Leadership Schools


The North West Leadership Schools (NWLS) are an initiative of Health Education England North West (HEE NW).  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.

The NWLS have three regional sub-committees: Cheshire and Merseyside, Cumbria and Lancashire and Greater Manchester. Each sub-committee is responsible for organising smaller “after work” events as well as collaborating on the annual NWLS Conference.
