Hosted by the NHS Confederation, NHS Employers helps employers to develop a sustainable workforce, improve staff experience and be the best employers they can be.
Our practical resources and expert insights help make sense of current and emerging healthcare issues, to keep employers up to date with the latest thinking and ensure they are informed and equipped to support the NHS workforce.
We generate opportunities to network and share knowledge and we actively seek the views of workforce leaders to make sure their voice is front and centre of health policy and practice.
We also lead the national collective relationships with trade unions on behalf of the NHS and the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
