Leadership Academy



The Chief Executive Development Network (CEDN) is aimed at chief executive level leaders in an NHS accountable officer role, focused on both service provision, commissioning and system development. Members are in NHS provider trusts and senior systems leadership roles with responsibility for achieving significant organisational collaboration e.g. accountable officers in NHS commissioning organisations, chief executives of local authorities, plus chief executives at national level within the Arm’s Length Bodies.

The membership criteria have been designed with two key principles in mind; to create a network of peers at chief executive level and create a network that covers health and local government chief executives so members can learn from each other’s experience and perspectives as we increasingly seek to integrate health and care services.
