Our strategy

NHS Providers is the membership organisation for the NHS hospital, mental health, community and ambulance services that treat patients and service users in the NHS. We help those NHS trusts and foundation trusts to deliver high-quality, patient-focused care by enabling them to learn from each other, acting as their public voice and helping shape the system in which they operate.

Our new four-year strategy sets out how NHS Providers will maintain our core activities and respond to new challenges to ensure we remain a relevant and credible voice on our members’ behalf.
