NHS Employers: National Engagement Service

What is it?

NHS Employers national engagement service supports senior leaders on workforce issues, in order to drive up organisational effectiveness and the quality of care for patients.

Why do it?

NHS Employers' national engagement service comprises four regional teams in London, Midlands and East, North, and South. Each team has its own network of HR directors and together they provide an engagement service that covers the whole of England. 

The national engagement service has four key aims:
Connect - To connect with HR directors (HRDs) through our regional networks so we can share learning and best practice.

Inform - To ensure that HRDs are kept up to date on current issues, key developments and information from across the healthcare system. 

Influence - To highlight opportunities where the HRD community can influence and shape policy as well as the implementation plans, in order to meet their needs.

Challenge - To stimulate discussion and innovation amongst HR professionals by exploring the latest research and thinking within HR practice.
