19 January 2023

Do OD aims to support and develop all those working in OD to make a difference in patient care and to be a catalyst in connecting those working in OD and transformation across our health and care systems.

Alongside the range of Do OD resources, events and development opportunities, there is also the opportunity to connect with your regional and local OD networks. 

Find your local and regional OD networks below to connect, share learning and challenges and support each other to make a difference.

  • The Midlands Leadership Academy provides OD support to OD practitioners through their communities of practice groups and offers OD practitioners across the Midlands a safe space to share experiences and learning as well as peer to peer support to develop their practice.
