Our influencing work

Parliament Square

We work closely with the Government, Parliament and national stakeholders.

We provide an independent and robust critique of policy and act as an important conduit between policy makers and NHS leaders – helping to test proposals and assess their impact on front line services.

We aim to inform parliamentarians, our members and stakeholder organisations about our work and to signpost information that is of most relevance to them.

What we do

Parliament

We meet regularly with Government, MPs (including members of the Health Select Committee and other parliamentary committees) and key policy and decision makers to feed in the views of our members and influence policy in the interests of patients, the public and NHS staff.

Stakeholders

As part of our work to influence policy and the policy debate, we work closely with a wide range of stakeholders, including professional bodies, patient organisations, manufacturers of medicines and devices, non-governmental organisations and think tanks.
