Our work

Welsh NHS Confederation
The Welsh NHS Confederation is a membership body representing all the organisations making up the NHS in Wales: seven Local Health Boards and three NHS Trusts.

We support our members by acting as a driving force for positive change through strong representation and our policy, influencing, communications and engagement work.

The Welsh NHS Confederation’s mission is to improve health and well-being by supporting our members to deliver high standards of care for patients and best value for taxpayers’ money.

Our vision is for the NHS in Wales to provide a continually improving comprehensive health service that is available to all and based on clinical need, not an individual’s ability to pay.

All of our work is underpinned by our core values:

  • Listening and responding to the needs of our members
  • Working in partnership to create dialogue and build consensus
  • Acting in the interests of patients and the public.
