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. We ensure 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. Our work is carried out with the OD community for the OD community.
