Our responsibilities

NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts and NHS trusts, as well as independent providers that provide NHS-funded care.

We offer the support these providers need to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable.

By holding providers to account and, where necessary, intervening, we help the NHS to meet its short-term challenges and secure its future.
