NHS Confederation

An independent body with representatives from multiple NHS organisations—strategic health authorities, primary care trusts, hospital trusts, ambulance trusts, mental health trusts, care trusts and so on—which lobbies government on behalf of its members. It is a central conduit of information between members and influences national policy by bringing together the full range of NHS bodies to transform health services.
