Are you a senior housing leader that sits on an NHS board?

Help the National Housing Federation improve relationships across housing and health.

23 June 2016

The National Housing Federation is keen to learn from senior leaders in our sector who currently have a relationship with an NHS body at a local or national level.

We’re looking to identify members who have a relationship with the NHS, including:

  • members who are currently Non-Executive Director on an NHS board
  • members who are full members of a Health and Wellbeing Board
  • members who have previously been a Non-Executive Director of an NHS board in the last three years.

By harnessing these contacts and connections we can improve how the health and housing sectors work together. This will be key in tackling the challenges outlined in NHS England Five Year Forward View and the Department of Health priorities for 2016-20.

We are looking to bring people together to share information and insights from two different types of organisation. This will cover a variety of topics including health policy and strategy, property, care and support, joint ventures, development, HR and communications.

We’ll invite everyone we hear from to meet as a group twice a year.

If you’d like to get involved, or could recommend someone else, please contact sarah-jane.gay@housing.org.uk by 15 July.
