About us

Our aim is  to create a supportive professional body that is compelling to join, relevant in its activities and contemporary in its approach.

The Institute of Healthcare Management is the leading independent membership organisation for health and social care managers, supporting personal development and driving change to improve health and well-being for all through quality management.

It is a challenging time to be a health and social care manager. More than ever, organisations involved in planning and delivering health and care need exceptional managers who use consistently good management practices to engage with staff and patients to drive the change agenda. IHM supports managers by helping them to meet these challenges and understand, develop, share and celebrate good practice.

The IHM is an Institute, approved in company law, with membership open to leaders, managers and administrators working in health and social care, owned and run by The Institute of Heath Management Ltd

The directors are Roy Lilley, Dr Terri Porrett and Jon Wilks who are also the founders of the community interest company The Academy of Fabulous Stuff.

The membership administrator is Pauline Bolt.

An advisory board of rotating members informs the work of the Institute and sets the direction.
