The Community Network is the national voice of NHS community providers. 

Hosted by the NHS Confederation and NHS Providers, we support trusts and not-for-profit organisations providing NHS community health services to deliver high-quality care by influencing national policy, sharing good practice and promoting a vision of integrated care in the community.

Our vision is to be an effective network for all trusts and not-for-profit organisations providing NHS community health services, championing, supporting and influencing their role in the health and care system.

Who is the Community Network for?

  • NHS community trusts
  • NHS acute trusts offering community services
