Country of origin: UK

The Social Partnership Forum (SPF) is a partnership between the Department of Health, NHS Employers and NHS Trade Unions to improve working relationships and involve partners in the workforce implications of NHS policy development.

The SPF website includes:
Advice and materials to support and encourage partnership working between employers and Trade unions at all levels in the NHS Case studies, examples of good practice and a selection of toolkits to support regional and local partnership working
Details and application materials for the new NHS Partnership Fund.

NHS organisations can bid for money from this fund to support partnership projects that support NHS Constitution pledges, meet local organisational goals, effectively communicate and engage with NHS staff and improve the quality of patient care. The website was a key recommendation in a progress report by the Involvement and Participation Association (IPA).
