HPMA President welcomes publication of NHS People Plan

The NHS people plan was published on the 30 July (https://www.england.nhs.uk/ournhspeople), in it it says, “HR and OD professionals have a key role to play. Human resources (HR) and organisational development (OD) professionals are critical to the NHS and will play a major part in driving the implementation of this plan, whatever the size of organisation they work in. They can help the NHS attract and retain more people, embed a compassionate and inclusive culture, create an increasingly multidisciplinary and adaptive workforce, and drive different and more flexible working practices. Professionals leading HR and OD work also play a crucial role in smaller organisations and in primary care. NHS England and NHS Improvement will establish a diverse steering group of senior NHS leaders and experts from a range of sectors to support the Chief People Officer’s review of HR and OD, which will report By the end of 2020/21.”
HPMA President Dean Royles said, “The recently published people plan has a focus over the next few months. It is great to see the contribution of HR and OD professionals so clearly recognised and we look forward as the HPMA to working with the NHS Chief People Officer to help influence and shape the CPOs review of HR and OD. Although due to complete over the short term we hope that a positive review will have long term impact on the NHS and the development of Workforce professionals in the future.”
