Strategists, Regulators & Policy Makers

Many MiP members have jobs that involve developing policies and strategies, or producing or responding to regulations – both in strategy and business development roles for NHS trusts and boards, CCGs, private hospitals and other delivery bodies, and in the national bodies that oversee and regulate the UK’s health and care services.

In NHS England, for example, we have large numbers of members working to strengthen professional leadership and practice on topics such as finance, nursing, specialised commissioning and organisational development; others focus on strengthening transparency and management information, operating in technical fields such as informatics. 

With the NHS Improvement family of organisations, MiP members occupy a range of system leadership roles – improving practice on matters such as transformation strategies, operational productivity, regional operations and patient experience. And in quality control and risk management bodies such as the CQC, many work as inspectors and senior executives.

Whilst these examples call on English organisations and structures, MiP also has members within strategic and policy making roles within Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – including some civil service employees, such as those working in health roles for the Welsh Government.

Finally, some MiP members work in strategy roles for private and voluntary health service providers, and for social care providers contracted by local authorities.
