HOPE European Exchange Programme

The HOPE European Exchange programme is 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.

This year, the number of UK applicants is increased and more organisations – across the NHS spectrum – encouraged to host participants from other EU countries to open up the experience for more people.

The 2020 programme will run from 11th May – 7th June 2020. 

Applications for participants and for hosting organisations for the 2020 programme will be open until 31st October 2019.
