Promoting partnership working in the NHS

Regional SPF

The arrangements of the national Social Partnership Forum (SPF) are broadly replicated at a local level via the regional SPFs. The role of the regional SPFs has become increasingly prominent and integral to the delivery of national policy through partnership. 

For an overview of the work and priorities of the regional SPFs you can download the national and regional SPF factsheet.
