The Do OD web pages are currently undergoing some changes as we consolidate our content and resources. You may notice that some links may not work and some pages may have been removed.

If you are looking for something in particular and can’t find it, please email us and we will do our best to help. We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible! 

Do OD is the expert resource on organisation development (OD) for health and care, delivered by NHS Employers in partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy

Do OD supports those developing organisations and systems to be better practitioners and make a positive impact on patient care. 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. 

To find out more about our partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy, please get in touch with Karen Dumain, national OD lead.

Know OD. Be OD. Do OD.
