Who we are

NHS England and NHS Improvement unite with NHS Confederation to deliver what we believe will be the most exciting, thought-provoking and useful conference and exhibition for healthcare leaders and their teams.

NHS Confederation NHS England & NHS Improvement
NHS Confederation is the membership body that brings together and speaks on behalf of the whole NHS. Representing over 500 members across the health and social care sector, the NHS Confederation aims:

  • to be an influential system leader
  • to represent our members with politicians, national bodies, the unions and in Europe
  • to support our members to continually improve care for patients and the public.

Having delivered over 20 years of Confed Conference, the team are looking forward to uniting with NHS England and NHS Improvement to deliver the biggest event in health and social care the UK has ever seen; NHS ConfedExpo.

‘Confed19 didn’t fail to deliver! Thought provoking real topics that, for all the right reasons, made me stop and examine the plans we have in our system with a new lens or two. I always return with a renewed energy and sense of purpose.’ – Delegate Confed19

NHS England and NHS Improvement are working together as a new single organisation to better support the NHS to deliver improved care for patients.

The new single operating model has been designed to support delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan.

Local health systems are supported by seven integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.  They make decisions about how best to support and assure performance in their region, as well as supporting system transformation and the development of sustainability and transformation partnerships and integrated care systems (ICS).

NHS England hosted Health and Care Innovation Expo for six years, the best of this annual event is being taken forward to a new partnership with NHS Confederation.

‘A high-octane environment which facilitated learning and networking.’ – Delegate Expo19
