The SPF groups were set up to provide a place for staff side and government to talk in partnership.
The Wider Group is the senior SPF group under the auspices of which the SPF Strategic Group meets.
The SPF subgroups report into the Strategic Group and the Strategic Group can commission existing or new subgroups to take forward agreed priority work or projects.
We currently have three subgroups working on priority areas for the health and care sector.
The national SPF Violence Reduction Subgroup is involved in work aimed at preventing and reducing violence against NHS staff.
