‘Employee Relations Policy Think Tank’
For: West Midlands NHS HR Directors, Deputy HR Directors and Senior HR Practitioners

PRESENTED BY: Jacqui Atkinson, Head of Employment Healthcare & Helen Badger, Employment Healthcare Partner, Browne Jacobson LLP

DATE: Tuesday 17th September 2019; 9.30am (Registration) to 12.30pm (followed by lunch)

LOCATION: Browne Jacobson LLP, Victoria Square House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B2 4BU



Effective and compassionate use of employee relations policies has recently come under the regulatory spotlight in the NHS. Browne Jacobson have been working with NHS Clients on ways to make policies easier to navigate while at the same time ensuring compliance with the law and with sector specific guidance from the NGO and NHSI. It’s becoming clear that these three commonly used HR policies namely the Raising Concerns Policy, Dignity at Work and Grievance Policy are in need of reconsideration to ensure that they are not only legally compliant but are also fit for purpose in the healthcare sector.

In this Think Tank Session we will talk through the work which we have been doing with some Trusts experiencing what we have termed ‘policy paralysis’ in this area and will also invite discussion with delegates about future proofing policies.

We will also discuss practical and policy consideration for trusts and their boards following the recent guidance on Learning Lessons to improve our People Practices issued by Dido Harding.

We hope that you will join us for an informative session which will have both strategic and operational importance for senior HR Practitioners in the NHS.
