Member networks

We run 12 member networks, supporting all NHS board level roles. Each network meets several times a year, and events are specifically designed to help members get the information, guidance and inspiration they need. A core part of membership, each network hosts both in-person and virtual events across the year, and is free for all members. 

Why attend?

  • shape and influence the system in which NHS trusts operate
  • get the latest updates from external bodies and regulators
  • participate in panel discussions and roundtable sessions
  • have open and honest discussions with peers (Chatham House rules apply)
  • each network has both virtual and in-person events

Supporting all board-level roles, our 12 networks are:

  • Chairs and chief executives
  • Company secretaries
  • Communication leads
