NHS European Office

UK and European flag
The NHS European Office provides the essential link between European policy and NHS organisations.

The European Office is based in Brussels and London and is part of the NHS Confederation. 

The Office covers a wide range of EU policy and legislative developments which have implications for the NHS, with a dedicated section on the NHS Employers website also covering European employment policy issues. In addition we offer a range of opportunities for NHS organisations to engage with EU affairs, to access EU support for innovation and to get involved in our work.
