The SPF is proud to sponsor the 2021 HPMA Excellence in people award for partnership working between employers and trade unions. This award celebrates initiatives that exemplify the benefits of employers and trade unions working together to overcome challenges and develop solutions.

This year it is more important than ever to celebrate the brilliant work of our employers and trade unions in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021 ceremony took place virtually on 7 October 2021.

Thank you to all the organisations and teams who submitted entries for the 2021 partnership award. Congratulations to our finalists Cornwall Partnership NHS FT, RCN Wales and Nottingham University Hospitals NHS FT and to South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS foundation trust, who won on the night with their brilliant Partnership working at its best case study, showcasing how working in partnership helped the trust effectively meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
