NHS England and NHS Improvement

NHS England (NHSE) leads the NHS in England. It sets the priorities and direction of the NHS. It commissions the contracts for GPs, pharmacists, and dentists and supports clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).

NHS Improvement supports foundation trusts and NHS trusts to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable.

From 01 April 2019, NHS England and NHS Improvement come together to act as a single organisation. Their aim is to better support the NHS and help improve care for patients.
