WINNER: Proud2bOps and Sherwood Forest Hospitals FT: A Senior Operational Movement: Energising, Connecting and Developing Operational Leaders

With over 500 members from across the country, Proud2bOps is a community of operational managers and leaders, providing idea exchange, and is open to be challenged in thinking and delivery while fostering a safe space of trust, support and respect.

It is an independent network, founded and grown by NHS operational managers who identified a gap in development, support and opportunities for operational leaders to connect and influence as a profession. It works hand in hand with partners from across health and care to share, shape and learn together.
