Promoting partnership working in the NHS

HPMA Partnership Award 2019

The HPMA Excellence Awards 2019 recognise, reward and share the outstanding work of people managers across health and social care in the UK.

In this the 28th year of the awards programme the SPF is proud to once again sponsor the partnership award. 

The SPF award for partnership working shines the spotlight on initiatives that demonstrate the benefits of partnership working, between employers, trade unions and other stakeholders, in the provision of health and social care. 

If you have you introduced an initiative that exemplifies the benefits of partnership working to overcome challenges and jointly develop solutions, where there is strong evidence of partnership working from the outset, which demonstrates clear outcomes and has made a real difference to patient care and influenced HR practice in healthcare and beyond, you should enter the 2019 awards.

Visit the HPMA website for more details on how to register and submit your entry, category judging criteria, rules of entry as well as answers to FAQs.

Our handy guide will help you to submit a winning entry and our flyer can be downloaded to encourage entries to the partnership awards.

You can also take a look at last year's winning initiative, implementation of a just and learning culture from Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, and watch them collecting their 2018 award in the video below.
