To find out more about more about what HESPA does or how to become a member, please contact us.
Executive members are intentionally spread well across the sector, selected on the basis of a balance between their individual knowledge and experience and their intuition’s type, location, mission and remit.
The HESPA office is based at Loughborough University and led by Jen Summerton and Monica Madeley. They are supported by PHES colleagues, some of whom are based in Loughborough and others who work at different locations across the UK.

There are also lots of acronyms in the sector, so we have compiled a useful list.
