About us

European parliament

The impact of the EU agenda on the NHS is constantly increasing, bringing with it both challenges and opportunities.

The NHS European Office is the conduit for the NHS to engage with the EU agenda. It is a representative body for the range of NHS organisations in England on EU affairs. 

We regularly seek input from NHS representatives to help assess potential implications for the NHS of EU policy and legislation, in order to develop the EU office position, papers and influence our lobbying strategies at European level.  

The work of the office includes:

  • monitoring and influencing EU policy and legislation in the interest of the NHS 
  • facilitating access to EU funds for NHS bodies and their partner organisations 
  • supporting pan-European collaborations and sharing successful EU practices.

Find out more about our work around the EU, Brexit and the wider health and care system on our NHS Confederation web pages.
