The National Care Forum (NCF) has created a new partnership with The Institute of Health and Social Care Management for the benefit of its members.
Members of the NCF will be able to enjoy the full membership offer from the IHSCM which includes:
- A full programme of events and support for conferences
- Accredited short course masterclasses
- Reports and expert analysis on key topics
- Special interest groups
At this challenging time to be a health and social care manager, organisations involved in planning, delivering and supporting health and care need exceptional managers, who use consistently good management practices to work in partnership with staff and patients to drive the change agenda.
“We’re excited to join forces with NCF because together our support for leaders and managers across both the health and social care sectors is much stronger,” said Jon Wilks, Chief Executive at IHSCM.
“This innovative partnership with IHSCM affirms NCF’s commitment to the importance of developing leadership and management skills in the social care sector and through IHSCM’s network and resources provides a substantial new benefit for existing and future NCF members,” said Vic Rayner, Chief Executive at NCF.
