Connecting you to the NHS

Join a growing number of non-NHS organisations that work closely with the NHS Confederation to bring value to the NHS. 

Become an associate today and join our Membership or Subscription packages and connect with our members.  

Why you should become a member or subscribe 

Colleagues from your organisation can access a range of exclusive behind-the-scenes briefings, attend events and be the first to find out about national campaigns we are launching to support our members. You will have access to our extensive range of events, either as a delegate or we will offer first refusal for sponsorship opportunities so you can align your brand with a topic or relevant content piece we are advocating. What is more, we won’t restrict how many people within your organisation access the content. Once you are signed up, you are part of the NHS Confederation and can share information about events*, content and more. 

As part of the launch programme, Associates members will also receive a 10% discount on NHS ConfedExpo exhibition stands, in which we expect to welcome 4,000 delegates to Liverpool. Please note, the discount for Associate subscribers will be capped at £500 max.


Membership is our revamped, enhanced Associate programme that now provides more opportunities to get involved - for the same price as before! Be involved, hear first-hand from leading thinkers from within the organisation and be part of our national campaigns by having a voice and a seat at the table.
