“Membership of the NHS Confederation has been indispensable.”

Dame Suzi Leather, Chair, Devon Integrated Care System

“It’s just been amazing for me. I have never felt so nurtured in the last 18 years. I’ve found it so supportive. I wish I’d found the NHS Confederation before.”

Dr Farzana Hussain, PCN Clinical Director, Newham Central 1 PCN

“It’s time to put a handbrake turn on the direction of health inequalities and this starts by us all collectively rolling up our sleeves and truly working as partners, not adversaries. Together with its members, the NHS Confederation has a clear lead role in co-shaping the system-based partnerships of the future.”

Dr Owen Williams OBE, Chief Executive, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust

“As we transition to the future role of commissioning in the context of ICSs, it is more important than ever to be part of a membership organisation that represents and understands our interests and can support us through this next phase.”

Tracey Cox, Chief Executive, Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group

“The pandemic has shown the value of integration and partnership working and we need to make that the norm. The NHS Confederation plays a unique role in bringing together leaders from across the system to help improve the health and wellbeing of our local communities.”

Sir Andrew Cash, System Leader, South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System

“There remains much to do to ensure the NHS has leadership that reflects the communities and workforce they are in service to. The NHS Confederation’s networks play an important role in supporting members in their work to support inclusive, compassionate leadership.”
