Each of the main partners on the SPF, Department of Health and Social Care, NHS trade unions, NHS Employers, NHS England and NHS Improvement and Health Education England, nominate a lead to represent their organisation in Wider and Strategic Group meetings.
In addition, the SPF has a supporting team (see below) carrying out the day-to-day work of the forum. This ensures that the partnership dialogue continues between formal meetings and agreed outcomes are delivered.
