Meet the team

NHS England and NHS Improvement’s People Plan sets out actions to support transformation across the whole NHS. It focuses on how we must all continue to look after each other and foster a culture of inclusion and belonging, as well as action to grow our workforce, train our people, and work together differently to deliver patient care.

Our new team, Looking after our People – Retention, formed in April 2020 and is here to support the great changes our organisations and systems are planning now and in the future. We are in the process (summer 2020) of appointing 7 regional Retention Managers to further support the delivery of innovation, wider collaboration and flexibility in the people space. We would love to hear from you and can all be contacted from our contact us and get involved page.
