Hospitals Forum 

hospitalThe Hospitals Forum provides tailored services and a national voice for hospital providers, focussing on the unique pressures they currently face.

The forum is the vehicle for our NHS Confederation members to come together and shape and challenge national policy and legislation affecting hospital services.

We:

  • provide an authoritative, whole-system and evidence-based perspective on hospital services.
  • make sense of the broader political and policy environment
  • identify and spread good practice and innovation in the hospital sector

What are we working on right now?

Sharing learning from the Care Quality Commission's (CQC) wave 1 and wave 2 inspections.

On the 14th May we will be holding an event which will share the experience and learning of providers that have already undergone CQC inspections, as well as help shape the inspection regime as it continues to develop. 

Visit our events pages to find out more and book a place.
