NHS Providers is the membership organisation for NHS public provider trusts. We represent every variety of trust, from large acute and specialist hospitals through to community, ambulance and mental health trusts. Our members provide the full range of NHS services in hospitals, the community and at home.
NHS Providers is the single voice for NHS public providers, recognised for our effective lobbying and influence within government, as a promoter of shared learning, and as a provider of exceptional support and development for our members.
NHS Providers is the new name for the Foundation Trust Network, which was set up in June 2004, and currently has over 200 NHS organisations in membership - including nearly all of the authorised foundation trusts and most of the NHS trusts preparing for foundation trust status.
NHS Providers is a member owned charity with a board of elected trustees working with and for our members to promote a vibrant and sustainable NHS public provider sector. The board meets ten times a year and is chaired by Dame Gill Morgan.
Membership of NHS Providers is open to all NHS foundation trusts and trusts.
