About the NHS Confederation

The NHS Confederation is the membership body that brings together and speaks on behalf of all organisations that plan, commission and provide NHS services.

Our members are drawn from every part of the health and care system and join over 560 organisations connected to the NHS Confederation.

We have three roles:

• to be an influential system leader

• to represent our members with politicians, national bodies, the unions and in Europe

• to support our members to continually improve care for patients and the public.

All our work is underpinned and driven by our vision of an empowered, healthy population supported by world-class health and care services; and our values of voice, openness, integrity, challenge, empowerment.
