Promoting partnership working in the NHS

HPMA Partnership Award 2019

The HPMA Excellence Awards 2019 recognise, reward and share the outstanding work of people managers across health and social care in the UK. In this the 28th year of the awards programme, the SPF is proud to once again sponsor the partnership award. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted entries to the 2019 HPMA partnership award. The shortlist for this and the other HPMA awards has been announced and is available on the HPMA website. Those who have been shortlisted will attend a judging day on 16 April and the winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on the 6 June in Manchester.

The SPF award for partnership working shines the spotlight on initiatives that demonstrate the benefits of partnership working, between employers, trade unions and other stakeholders, in the provision of health and social care. 

The award celebrates initiatives that exemplify the benefits of partnership working between employers and trade unions to overcome challenges and develop solutions. Entries need to demonstrate evidence of partnership working from the outset and how the initiative has had a positive impact on the provision of patient care and services.  

Take a look at last year's winning initiative, implementation of a just and learning culture from Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, and watch them collecting their 2018 award in the video below.
