The engagement service for the North covers the North East, North West and Yorkshire and Humber regions of England.
Our purpose is to be the recognised voice of the HR community in the North, and to support workforce leaders to deliver better HR solutions and improve patient experience.
HR director networks
There are three HR director networks in this region, and we encourage all HR and workforce leaders in the NHS to attend our regular meetings in order to share best practice and tackle strategic workforce issues affecting employers.
North East HR Directors Network – chaired by Kath Griffin, Director of Human Resources, City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust
North West HR Directors Network – chaired by Jayne Shaw, Director of Workforce and Organisational Development, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust
- Yorkshire and Humberside HR Directors Network – chaired by Jayne Adamson, Director of People and Organisational Effectiveness, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust
We facilitate partnership working via the North Regional Social Partnership Forum and the North West sub group. These forums are a platform for management and staff side representatives to discuss and debate the strategic issues affecting the NHS workforce.
