On Friday 23 January, HSMC and the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL) at the University of Nottingham successfully launched a Health Policy, Organisation and Management (HPOM) network for research and practice. This first seminar, held at Park House, discussed the theme of 'quality and safety' in healthcare with a variety of research activities being presented by both centres.

The HPOM network looks to build on funding received by both centres from the Birmingham-Nottingham Strategic Collaboration Fund. Over the next 12 months a series of seminars will take place across both Universities to encourage discussion and debate regarding key issues related health policy, organisation and management.
