UK National Health Service, publicly funded healthcare system in England

We work with NHS Improvement to act as a single organisation to better support the NHS to deliver improved care for patients. NHS England is increasing transparency in the NHS and improving services for patients. We work with NHS staff, patients, stakeholders and the public to improve the health outcomes for people in England. We are responsible for the stewardship of £99 billion of public funds to provide comprehensive health and care services available to all, where there is clinical need and regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. We are custodians of the values of the NHS Constitution, committed to putting patients at the heart of everything we do, promoting transparency and accountability of our work to citizens, and ensuring the most efficient, fair and inclusive use of finite taxpayer resources.
