The NHS Partners Network (NHSPN) is the trade association representing the widest range of independent sector providers of NHS clinical services ranging through acute, primary, community, clinical home healthcare, diagnostics and dental.

Our members are drawn from both the “for profit” and “not for profit” sectors and include large international hospital groups and small specialist providers. All are committed to working in partnership with the NHS and to the values set out in the NHS Constitution.
