What we do
NHS Providers is led by our members. We have an active board of 20 chairs and chief executives, elected by member trusts, with all trusts and foundation trusts in England in voluntary membership.
Our strategic objectives span the key focus areas of influence, voice and support, provided by a professional organisation. Through these we:

- help providers to drive improvement through effective shared development, support and learning
- build effective relationships with key stakeholders in central government, in Parliament, with regulators and across the whole healthcare community
- champion member interests and raise their profile positively in the media
- respond to policy consultations and horizon scan the sector to help members to prepare for the future
- create networking opportunities across the country
- provide training and development opportunities for board members, executive colleagues and governors
- support aspirant trusts on their journey to becoming foundation trusts
- gather and disseminate best practice
- support all the sectors from which our members are drawn, including acute, ambulance, mental health, community and integrated trusts.
