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 Heathcare 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 Chief Executive is Paul Conroy, and the Membership Services Manager is Pauline Bolt.

An advisory board headed by the former Chair of NHSI, Ed Smith, supported by Sam Jones, recently stepped down as Head of New Models of Care at NHSE, and Peter Homa, until January 2018, the  Chief Executive of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS FT and now chair of the Leadership Academy, informs the work of the Institute and sets the direction.
