Leadership and Management in the NHS Dear Colleague,

At the North West Mentoring Scheme we understand the changes taking place in the public sector as a whole and the importance of excellent leadership and management in this. The King's Fund commission stated in its white paper earlier this year that "NHS organisations need to own the requirement to improve management and develop leaders...(and) to move beyond the outdated model of heroic leadership to recognise the value of leadership that is shared, distributed and adaptive."

Commissioned by the North West Leadership Academy, the Mentoring Scheme is supported by all NHS Trusts from across the region offering a practical and cost effective solution to professional development within any organisation with much of our service provided at no cost for NHS staff. A key feature of the scheme is the bespoke online matching system which supports members by allowing them to set clear mentoring objectives and self manage their mentoring relationships at a time convenient to them. We continue to enjoy significant growth in our membership which has helped The North West Mentoring Scheme become a forefront leader in the mentoring field.

In Partnership:

We work in partnership and have developed strong relationships with a number of public and private sector organisations offering our expertise in this field. As many public sector organisations are working more as partners, the Scheme offers cross-sector and specialism mentoring relationships that support this agenda. We can help and support your internal and wider mentoring needs, together with delivering tailored training for your organisation. We also offer a number of local and regional development events to support the personal and career development of our members.
