|dc.description||This third report by the Health Service Employers Agency covers the period 1st January 1999 to 31st December 1999. As the Agency has now been through a period of consolidation the Board deemed it timely to review its role and operation with a view to maximising its contribution to Human Resource Management in the health sector. It was decided that the review would involve consultation with all of the Agency's constituents and further clarification from the Department of Health and Children on matters to be devolved to the Agency. The review was underway at the end of the year. The continued implementation of the Strategic Management initiative and modernisation programmes as provided for in Programme for Prosperity and Fairness require health service employers to adopt a strategic approach to human resource issues, and ensure that our personnel policies practices and procedures are designed to positively progress the HR agenda in the health service. It is vital therefore that our HR Managers are encouraged and supported to work in collaboration with the Agency in its developing best practice in this regard. An important element of the Human Resource Management agenda is the development of partnership arrangements both at national and local level in order to improve the quality of services provided to patients and clients by developing joint ownership by management, unions and staff of the change process. The National Partnership Forum established during the year will lead, model and facilitate the partnership approach and create an action agenda for the development of a new active relationship involving all employees||en_GB|
