Commercial and partnership opportunities


The NHS Confederation is the membership body that brings together and speaks on behalf of all organisations that plan, commission and provide NHS services. We offer specific consultancy and tailored services to healthcare providers and commercial organisations in the UK and overseas.

Our team is made up of individuals with a wealth of commercial and partnership expertise. We will help you to develop tailored sponsorship packages that best match the aims and objectives of your event, enabling you to maximise income generation.

From supporting an event, advertising your organisation in a conference guide to hosting bespoke roundtables and tailored projects, we will work with you to get your brand, product or service in front of key decision makers, helping you to exchange valuable information and create lasting relationships.

Partnership, commercial and networking opportunities
