The NHS is well known as a vast employer but it isn’t just medical staff that make up their number. There is a massive supporting cast behind the scenes which keep hospitals running smoothly and, perhaps most importantly, safely.
The NHS Confederation is the voice of NHS leadership. They are the only membership body that brings together, and speaks on behalf of, the whole health and care system.
Their mission, vision and values inform the work of the NHS Confederation and guide how they interact with members, partners and stakeholders.
The NHS Confederation plays a crucial leadership role by bringing together all parts of the system through their networks, corporate members and associations but they also work in partnership with a wide range of organisations that represent health professionals, patients, their families and carers, supply chain organisations, local government and partners from across the wider health and social care industry.
