  • People and HR excellence: great people management leading to improved patient outcomes

Our objectives are: 

  •  To provide the best possible development opportunities to enhance the competence and capabilities of workforce colleagues across member organisations

  • Stay abreast of current thinking in people management to ensure development delivered is continually stretching our members.

  •  Provide networking opportunities across member organisations to enable the sharing of best practice in people management; increase collaboration across organisations; consolidate knowledge and accelerate learning

  •  Maintain current membership and attract new members in a sustainable way

  •  Work closely with our partners including member organisations, development providers, sponsors, CIPD, HFMA, local authority, the Leadership Academy, HEE etc
