The Academy is pleased to be sponsoring the HOPE European Exchange programme again in 2019. It’s a unique and exciting opportunity to understand the challenges of a healthcare system outside the UK. The benefits are personal, as well as professional, as it leads to seeing your own role and the NHS in a whole new light.
Firstly, HOPE stands for Hospitals of EurOPE. The exchange programme offers those with healthcare managerial responsibilities a unique opportunity to exchange time in your healthcare system with another EU member state for four weeks, followed by an international meeting for all participants.
The 2019 programme will run from 6th May – 4th June 2019. Applications for participant and hosting organisations for the 2019 programme will be open until 31st October 2018.
This year, we have increased the number of UK applicants and encouraged more organisations – across the NHS spectrum – to host participants from other EU countries to open up the experience for more people.
