The Welsh NHS Confederation is a membership body representing all the organisations making up the NHS in Wales: seven Health Boards, three NHS Trusts and Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW).
We support our members to improve health and well-being by working with them to deliver high standards of care for patients and best value for taxpayers’ money. We act as a driving force for positive change through strong representation and our policy, influencing and engagement work.
Take a look at our Annual Review for 2020/21 to find out how we've supported out members this year.
What we do
The Welsh NHS Confederation’s mission is to improve health and well-being by supporting our members to deliver high standards of care for patients and best value for taxpayers’ money.
Why we do it
Our vision is for the NHS in Wales to provide a continually improving comprehensive health service that is available to all and based on clinical need not an individual’s ability to pay.
How we do it
We work with our members to be a driving force for positive change through;
- strong representation
- promoting understanding of the health system within the political landscape
- influencing health and social care policy
- delivering support functions for our members
- supporting leaders
- networking and communication
- sharing best practice
- stakeholder and public engagement
- promoting excellence in employment issues
- partnership working with a wide range of other health and social care organisations
- organising an annual conference and other events to bring the NHS in Wales and its partners together.
All of our work is underpinned by our core values:
- listening and responding to the needs of our members
- working in partnership to create dialogue and build consensus
- acting in the interests of patients and the public.
