NHS England leads the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We set the priorities and direction of the NHS and encourage and inform the national debate to improve health and care.

We want everyone to have greater control of their health and their wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.

NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for spending this money effectively for patients and efficiently for the tax payer. A lot of the work we do involves the commissioning of health care services in England. We commission the contracts for GPs, pharmacists, and dentists and we support local health services that are led by groups of GPs called Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). CCGs plan and pay for local services such as hospitals and ambulance services.

We have devised a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View. And now, with our partners, we are delivering that vision. This vision shows that we are getting serious about prevention, identifying and delivering improvements in health care, redesigning the NHS so it continues to meet the needs of patients, ensuring the NHS is financially sustainable and engaging the public in this whole process.

We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations.

The Events Team is a small but dynamic team, with responsibility for delivering an effective service supporting managers and staff across NHS England to deliver excellent NHS England events and presence at others’ events.

The events team is responsible for delivery of Health and Care Innovation Expo – this is the biggest annual event hosted by NHS England, and attracts very senior leaders from across England and abroad. More than 5,000 people attend over two days. The events team works throughout the year with partners from across the NHS, local government, the voluntary sector and the private sector to deliver a programme of more than 200 hours of exciting, informative content across multiple stages and workshops.
