What is the IHSCM?
The Institute of Health & Social Care Management is an Institute, approved in company law, with membership open to leaders, managers and administrators working in health and social care.
Our aim is to create a supportive professional body that is compelling to join, relevant in its activities and contemporary in its approach.
It is a challenging time to be a health and social care manager. More than ever, 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.
The IHSCM supports managers by helping them to meet these challenges and understand, develop, share and celebrate good practice.
Who we represent
We are the leading independent membership organisation for managers and leaders planning, delivering and supporting health and care in the UK and across the world, supporting personal and professional development and driving change to improve health and well-being for all through quality management.
Our members are in, or are progressing towards, a management role in an organisation which plans, provides or supports health and care (in its broadest sense).
Our diverse and inclusive membership includes managers from the NHS, social care, public health, private sector, military, charity and voluntary sectors, as well as a thriving overseas representation – across all management levels and disciplines.
History of the IHSCM
The IHSCM has a long history, which spans over 100 years from 1902 to the present day and has seen many changes and challenges to the healthcare system.
