Promoting partnership working in the NHS

HPMA Partnership Award 2018

The HPMA Excellence Awards 2018 recognise and reward outstanding work in healthcare human resource management. This year the Social Partnership Forum is proud to once again sponsor the partnership award, recognising great examples of partnership working between employers, trade unions and other stakeholders, in the provision of health and social care. 

The SPF are pleased to have received a strong field of entries for the 2018 partnership award, demonstrating strong partnership working from the outset to overcome challenges and make a real difference to staff experience and patient care. Shortlisted entries will be invited to judging day to take place on 17 April, where they will present their initiative to the judges face to face. 

The winner will be announced at the HPMA awards ceremony on 7 June 2018.
