2023 HPMA partnership award winner
Congratulations to the Isle of Wight NHS Trust for winning the partnership award for working between employers and trade unions, with their initiative for improving flexible working opportunities for staff in line with changes to the NHS Terms and Conditions of Service.
Trust and trade union colleagues co-designed a flexible working action plan and updated the trust’s flexible working policy, which subsequently contributed to improvements in the trust’s NHS Staff Survey results.
