Promoting partnership working in the NHS

Meet The Team

Each of the main partners of the Social Partnership Forum has a chair, lead, and support team. Each partner (DHSC, NHS trade unions, NHS Employers, NHS England, Health Education England and NHS Improvement) nominates a chair who is responsible for co-ordinating relevant views. The current chairs are: 

  • Sara Gorton, National Secretary for Health at UNISON
  • Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers
  • Lee McDonagh, Director General, Strategy and External Relations Directorate, Department of Health and Social Care
  • Helen Bullers, Acting People and Organisational Development Director, NHS England
  • Lee Whitehead, Director of People and Communications, Health Education England
  • Caroline Corrigan, National Director of People Strategy, NHS Improvement

In addition to the chairs, each partner has a lead and supporting team working regularly on the day-to-day work of the forum. This ensures that the partnership dialogue continues between formal meetings and agreed outcomes are delivered.
