HPMA UK Conference 2021: People Profession into the Future: Thursday 2 & Friday 3 December 2021

Once again the HPMA national conference was virtual, on the Airmeet platform. This last year or so has certainly made sure
that our NHS people services are as central to the workforce as our frontline services. As an organisation we have taken
the opportunity to magnify the amazing work that is happening in our organisations across the UK. As President Dean
Royles says, we must now really start to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.
