The East of England SPF was set up by employers, trade unions and NHS Employers engagement team Midlands and East, to pursue their common purpose of developing a world class health service, delivered by a world class workforce, in the NHS in the East of England.
The partnership forum recognises respective roles and responsibilities, establishes shared values and common purpose and sets key principles for effective joint working. This provides important benefits including ensuring high standards of employment practices in the health services and improved services for patients and users.
The forum is co-chaired by Sasha Savage, Head of Health, UNISON, Liz Cooke, Head of Human Resources, Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust and Oonagh Monkhouse, Director of Workforce and Organisational Development, Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
