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

Our supporter’s brochure contains activity from the NHS Confederation and its networks, including NHS Employers, the Mental Health Network as well as conferences and events from our Welsh and Northern Ireland counterparts.

There are a range of opportunities for networking, access and engagement with our members around hot topics at the forefront of our members’ agenda. This publication outlines all our forthcoming commercial and partnership opportunities for the remainder of this financial year.

Discounts are available for Associates across all activities and bespoke multi-event packages can be tailored to meet your aims and objectives, offering your organisation the best value for money.

Our 2018/19 commercial brochure is coming soon. Email to discuss the options available for you.
