The NHS European Office works in partnership with a number of organisations in the UK and abroad.

Partnership working, both domestically and across Europe, is an important way of sharing information and reinforcing our views on legislative and policy developments at a European level. The NHS European Office works with a range of organisations, both from the healthcare sector and with wider interests, to achieve common goals and objectives. Our partners include:

HOPE - The European Hospital and Healthcare Federation 
Representing national public and private hospital associations and hospital owners, HOPE aims to seek improvement in the health of citizens and a uniformly high standard of hospital care across the EU. You can view some of their publications on our EU Library page

The European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies 
The European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies supports and promotes evidence-based health policy-making through comprehensive and rigorous analysis of the dynamics of healthcare systems in Europe. The Observatory, in conjunction with LSE Health, produce Eurohealth, a quarterly publication that provides a forum for researchers, policy-makers and experts to express their views on health policy issues in Europe. Further Observatory publications can be viewed on our EU Library page.

The Local Government Association European & International Unit 
The LGA European and International Unit monitors and influences key European proposals which will affect local authorities, analysing their impacts and liaising with central and local government, the European institutions and international bodies to ensure the best possible deal for local councils around the UK.   

Social Partners
The NHS European Office also participates on behalf of the NHS in the EU social dialogue process through our membership of two European employers' associations, HOSPEEM and CEEP. To find out more about this aspect of our work, see our page on social dialogue.
