Interview with Niall Dickson, Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation
20th February 2020
As chief executive of the NHS Confederation, I lead an organisation which supports the United Kingdom’s most cherished institution: the National Health Service (NHS). We bring together and speak on behalf of organisations that plan, commission and provide NHS services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Through our networks in England and our operations in Wales and Northern Ireland, we represent the wide variety of organisations in the NHS and as such, are well placed to articulate the interests of the healthcare system.
In England, we also run NHS Employers, a support service for NHS organisations who together form the nation’s largest employer. In addition, we have a small international team which focuses on the NHS’s links with other health systems and which operates the NHS’s European Office in Brussels, which has been concerned with EU legislation and more recently on the health implications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
