Do OD is the expert resource on Organisation Development (OD) for health and care, delivered by NHS Employers in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement.

Do OD supports those developing organisations and systems to be better practitioners and make a positive impact on patient care, ensuring the ambitions and actions of the NHS People Plan are at the heart of our work. We take a systems approach to our work, clearly demonstrating our values of curiosity, creativity, courage and co-production in all we do. We strive for OD practitioners to raise our ambition and deepen our practice. 

Do OD is co-led by Paul Taylor-Pitt and Karen Dumain with support from Steph Foley, Jan Worthy, Jaquie Eden-James and Jess Gregson. Our work is carried out with the OD community for the OD community.

Know OD, Be OD, Do OD.
