The NHS Confederation’s largest network is NHS Employers, the employers’ organisation for the NHS in England.

NHS Employers leads on responding to the immediate and longer-term workforce issues facing NHS organisations and keeps employers up to date with the latest thinking to ensure they are informed and equipped to support the NHS workforce.

NHS Employers’ practical resources and expert insights help employers make sense of current and emerging healthcare issues, develop sustainable workforces, improve staff experiences and be the best employers they can be.

The organisation generates opportunities to network and share knowledge and actively seeks the views of workforce leaders to make sure their voice is front and centre of health policy and practice.

NHS Employers also leads the national collective relationships with trade unions on behalf of the NHS and the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
