Chief Executive Development Network


The role of the chief executive in health care has never been more important. How we help our chief executives to be successful ‘in role’ whether newly appointed or experienced – is one of the NHS’s most important leadership issues.  As the health system evolves and new models of care emerge, enabling chief executives to successfully lead their organisations and collaborate in the transformation of care is critical.

The Chief Executive Development Network (CEDN) has been designed to support chief executives with their development and ensure they are the best they can be in these challenging roles, both for themselves and for patient care.

This development network is supported by NHS England and NHS Providers.  It is intended to support chief executives in leadership development and collaboration across systems to improve population health.

The Chief Executive Development Network is independent as it is fully funded by the membership of the Network and is hosted by the Leadership Academy.
