New collaboration aims to support PMO practitioners across the NHS


The House of PMO and the Healthcare Project and Change Association (HPCA) launched their new partnership in October 2023 which will provide PMO professionals working in the NHS today with a PMO network and community to support their professional development and help promote PMO as a change profession across the NHS.


HPCA, the professional association for project, programme, portfolio and change management practitioners working in the NHS today have partnered with the House of PMO to provide NHS-based PMO practitioners with all the benefits from the House of PMO membership.


PMO practitioners will have access a wide range of career-enhancing opportunities such as training and development, events, career resources and access to a dedicated NHS PMO network and community of practice.


Anyone working in PMO within the NHS can become part of the PMO network – through HPCA membership or House of PMO membership.
