EU exchange programme for NHS managers

The European Hospital and Healthcare Federation, known as HOPE, in association with the NHS Leadership Academy, are looking for NHS managers and organisations to participate in its exchange programme for European healthcare systems.

HOPE takes candidates on a four week placement within Europe to provide participants with the opportunity to learn about and experience another healthcare system. The programme will promote sharing of knowledge and expertise and provide training and experience for hospital and healthcare professionals.

The programme is open to anyone with a minimum of three years experience working in hospitals and/or healthcare facilities. Since 2004 135 EU visitors have been placed in the NHS and more than 65 participants have gone overseas from the UK.

Applications to the 2018 programme are now open, and the deadline for applications is 31st October 2017.
