The IHM is the leading independent membership organisation for managers and leaders who commission, deliver and support health and care in the UK and across the world.

Our mission is to support your personal and professional development and to help you improve health and well-being for all through quality management, by connecting with other membership organisations and professional bodies to enable us all to get the very best out of our collective expertise and resources.

Whether you’re a current member or thinking about joining, please contact us today  to let us know how we can support you and your teams to be and to feel at your best.


We think it is important that IHM members are identified as committed, ethical professionals, who bring to their work a strong sense of vocation and professionalism.

We, with the help of Sir David Dalton and others, have developed and launched the IHM Code of Practice, which is a requirement of membership and an obligation for all members.

Our membership options include reduced rates for students and retired members. We also offer Corporate membership.
