The SPF groups and subgroups bring together trade unions and arms length bodies to develop and implement policy in the health and care sector.
A Unison demonstration.

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.
