Day two of the HEFMA Leadership Forum concentrates on the critical issue of the workforce, with four presentations tackling different aspects of the significant challenges faced in the recruitment and retention of staff.
Jeremy Over, Executive Director of Workforce & Communication at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust will examine how NHS Trusts can use their anchor organisation status to act as a sustainable and positive employer in the local community and start to ‘grow their own’ skilled workforce.
Jeremy’s experience within the UK healthcare sector spans over 20 years, during which time he has gained a range of experience at all levels (director level since 2014). He is driven by his belief that there is no more meaningful place to work and serve than in the NHS. He also understands that as the largest employer in the UK, the NHS has the opportunity and responsibility to develop the careers and support the life prospects of tens of thousands of new joiners every year. Jeremy’s contribution to discussions at the Forum will focus on how, as leaders, we can best facilitate that within local systems.
Jeremy is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
As well as the informative speaker programme, the Leadership Forum also includes an exhibition at which suppliers will feature their latest product and service innovations, the Awards Dinner and extensive networking opportunities.
