The Northern Ireland Confederation for Health and Social Care (NICON) is the voice of the organisations working across Northern Ireland’s integrated Health and Social Care system (HSC). Part of the UK-wide NHS Confederation, it is the only membership body for all HSC organisations.
NICON’s membership comprises all six HSC Trusts (including the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service); the ‘regional’ organisations (the Public Health Agency and the Business Services Organisation); as well as the smaller, 'specialist' HSC bodies.
Additionally, NICON’s Associate Membership scheme is open to both commercial and not-for-profit organisations working in the health and social care space.
