C&M People Summit

People Professions Recognition Flip Book- Now available to view!

In June 2021 the CMHCP held its first virtual People Summit; a fantastic three days highlighting the innovative and impactful work of those leading and supporting the People agenda in Cheshire and Merseyside.  


Following the Summit we felt that it was important to offer a space to recognise and promote the work of the People Professions, and those working to progress the people strategy in the region. And so, the People Professions Recognition Flipping Book was born. Nominations were canvassed across the Cheshire and Merseyside region from anyone in health and care to recognise colleagues working in HR, OD, Learning and Development, Workforce, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Occupational Health, Health and Wellbeing, Communications and Engagement, and other related disciplines.  


You will also notice that some of the colleagues referenced in this book do not hold traditional People Function roles but have been recognised for their contributions to the People agenda across Cheshire and Merseyside. It is fantastic to see such a range of professions giving their time, knowledge and skills in support of their colleagues and organisations, and the wider health and care sector.  


We continue to have a big challenge ahead as we develop as an Integrated Care System and recover from the ongoing pandemic. Our People Professions and those supporting the workforce, play an incredibly important part in that. If what is reflected within these pages is just a snapshot of the work they do, Cheshire and Merseyside has an exciting future ahead for our People and the communities we serve.  


Congratulations to everyone who has featured in this flip book, thank you for all that you’ve done.
