Our ongoing programme of regional member meetings and visits is a key priority for the NHS Confederation, enabling us to stay connected to local issues and ensuring our members’ views inform our work and priorities on their behalf.
We regularly visit members up and down the country including acute trusts, community providers, commissioning support units and ambulance trusts. See our interactive map (below) for a list of members we have visited.
As well as helping us to understand our member’s needs and priorities at the local level, these visits provide an opportunity for you to:
- Showcase your services and good practice.
- Talk to our senior leaders direct about your concerns and priorities and how the NHS Confederation can best support you.
- Gain further insight into the latest national political and policy discussions and direction of travel.
- Help inform our key policy lines and influencing activities on your behalf.
Visiting your organisation
The visits usually involve either our chief executive, Niall Dickson, or our policy director, Nick Ville, coming to meet you at your organisation with up to three other members of staff from our policy, public affairs and member engagement teams.
If you would like to arrange a visit, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The NHS Confederation is hosting a series of regional dinners for our member chairs and chief executives throughout 2018.
These evening dinners are a key member benefit and provide a valuable opportunity for local health and care leaders to come together and discuss cross-system issues and priorities in an open and informal setting.
