About the NHS Confederation

Woman thanking the doctor

The NHS Confederation is the membership body that brings together and speaks on behalf of organisations that plan, commission and provide NHS services in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

We represent hospitals, community and mental health providers, ambulance trusts, primary care networks, clinical commissioning groups and integrated care systems. 

We have three roles: 

  • to be an influential system leader
  • to represent our members with politicians, national bodies, the unions and in Europe
  • and to support our members to continually improve care for patients and the public.

All of our work is underpinned and driven by our vision of an empowered, healthy population supported by world-class health and care services; and our values of voice, openness, integrity, challenge, empowerment.                 

Charity number 1090329. Company number 04358614. Registered address 2nd Floor, 18 Smith Square, Westminster, London, SW1P 3HZ
