Community network impact report
The Community Network is the national voice for NHS community services in England. Established by the NHS Confederation and NHS Providers in May 2018, the network brings together and represents NHS and not-for-profit organisations providing NHS community health services.
The NHS Confederation and NHS Providers work together for the community services sector to make sure the future of the NHS is about joined-up care in people's communities, with the recruitment of a staff member supporting this work. While members have previously been able to access the network's offer free of charge, we will be looking to develop a sustainable future funding model from April 2020 onwards. This update outlines the impact the Community Network has had so far, since its launch in May 2018.
