Our policy board

Organisation chart

The policy board advises on NHS Employers' strategic priorities, provides guidance on how we deliver our programmes and informs our evidence to the pay review bodies and consultation responses. 

Members engage with key stakeholders, such as senior representatives from the Department of Health and Social Care and the arm's length bodies, on the implications for the workforce of existing and emerging national policy. Members also champion specific workforce areas, bringing an expert perspective from their organisation and networks.
