Who we work with

NHS Providers works with a small, but growing, number of commercial partners to identify solutions that other trusts have successfully adopted and that we believe can help our members deliver better outcomes for patients. All partners have demonstrated how their teams and services have worked in and supported NHS trusts. To find out more about partnership opportunities with NHS Providers get in touch with Sandra Marshall.
