Welcome to the IHSCM Open Day

Our diverse and inclusive membership includes managers from the NHS, social care, public health, private sector, military, charity and voluntary sectors, as well as a thriving overseas representation – across all management levels and disciplines.

Our aim is to create a supportive professional body that is compelling to join, relevant in its activities and contemporary in its approach.

It is a challenging time to be a health and social care manager. More than ever, organisations involved in planning, delivering and supporting health and care need exceptional managers, who use consistently good management practices to work in partnership with staff and patients to drive the change agenda. 

The IHSCM supports managers by helping them to meet these challenges and understand, develop, share and celebrate good practice.

All members benefit from:

  • Access to resources, guides, reports, event recordings and podcasts

Resources

We are delighted to offer members the CredibleMind resource; a new, free online mental health resource designed to help people manage and enhance their mental wellbeing. 

crediblemind

A unique system, CredibleMind, provides expert- and user-rated guidance on techniques and tools to help people manage their own mental health and wellbeing. CredibleMind is a ‘one-stop shop’ for mental health guidance that helps people help themselves, with an evidence-based approach to self-help.  CredibleMind not only helps assess and deal with pressing mental health problems, but also guides people to further build resilience and to flourish holistically in their approach to life.

Our Hexitime partnership allows mentors to specify how much time they are prepared to offer and for mentees to find a mentor and agree time commitment to suit them.

“This is the very best of our Institute. Members helping members, united in a desire to encourage, guide and offer support” – Jon Wilks, CEO.

Hexitime enables members to exchange skills and ideas for improvement. Additionally, when any IHSCM member joins, you can apply for our badge.

What’s more, it is all voluntary and free.

If you would like to develop your mentoring skills do please consider enrolling on our Introduction to Mentoring Short Course Masterclass – it only takes around 6 hours to complete and it is entirely online for you to undertake as your time permits.
