The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the extent to which society depends upon essential workers, with health and social care workers in particular playing a critical role in pulling us through the crisis.
Last year people took to the streets to applaud their heroic work. But what happens now that the clapping has stopped? What is the aftermath of COVID-19 on the health and social care workers who have spent the last year working under extreme pressure in sometimes dangerous conditions? What lessons from before and during the pandemic should we take forward into the post-covid era?
Across June and July, the PrOPEL Hub, in partnership with HPMA, will be running a series of free events drawing on evidence gathered before and during the pandemic to explore the implications of Covid-19 for employment relations in the Health & Social Care sector across the 4 UK nations.
Partnership working in NHS Scotland has been crucial to employment relations for more than two decades and has recently been required to pivot towards health and social care integration, and contribute to responses to the COVID19 crisis. Research by the University of Strathclyde in partnership with NHS Scotland has assessed the impact of Partnership arrangements; and how they set the context for employee engagement strategies across the NHS and care.
At our upcoming webinar, Patricia Findlay Director at the Scottish Centre for Employment Research at the University of Strathclyde highlight key takeaways from more than a decade worth of research into partnership working in the NHS and care sector and consider the future of partnership working post Covid-19. She will be joined by Shirley Rogers, Director of Organisational Readiness at Scottish Government. Shirley will share her lived experience of partnership working and provide practical insight on the “how” of implementing such an approach from her years as NHS Scotland Chief People Officer and Scottish Government Workforce and Strategy Director.
This event will be held on Monday 14th June starting at 3pm and will last for approximately 60 minutes and will include the opportunity to ask questions. Delegates can submit questions in advance or add them during the webinar. If you would like to submit a question in advance, please email it to email@example.com
Joining instructions will be sent out 24 hours prior to the event.
