GROWING, DEVELOPING AND EMPOWERING A WORLD CLASS DIVERSE BHR WORKFORCE
The BHR Health and Care Academy aims to engage proactively with communities to ensure that we meet the needs of local people, maximising the impact on narrowing inequalities, diversity and inclusion and enabling staff to act on a collective vision for enhancing community health and wellbeing.
Through the work of the Academy and promoting the employment of local people we aim to increase the health and economic circumstances of residents. This is particularly important post Covid.
The BHR Health and Care Academy will build-on and align, the significant number of workforce initiatives and programmes of work already underway across the system, bringing them together into a whole picture, identifying and addressing key gaps, and working with the BHR Transformation Boards and Borough Partnerships to drive the workforce initiatives required to deliver their transformation programmes.
An Academy Steering Group of key workforce leads and interested partners from across the BHR system and beyond, has been meeting to identify and develop core work streams of work, creating a shortlist of workforce priorities to collaboratively align at a system level and to achieve a more flexible, integrated and healthy workforce.
To maximise and embed the core values of the BHR Health and Care Academy, operational roles and responsibilities have been agreed across the ICP partners with an intent to co-ordinate the delivery of real health and wellbeing improvements for the benefit of our local communities.
