The NHS Consultants’ Association changed its name last year to make it clear that all doctors, not just consultants, were welcome to join.

They campaign for the restoration of the NHS as a publicly funded, publicly provided and publicly accountable service. This means the abandonment in England of the market based policies of the last 20 years, primarily by abolishing their key feature, the artificial separation into “purchaser” and “provider” as has already been achieved in the rest of the UK.

Their objectives are to:

  • Restore the NHS as a publicly funded, publicly provided and publicly accountable service
  • Secure fair access to health services based on needs not wants.
  • Promote professional and public involvement in evidence based planning of health care services.
  • Highlight current problems and controversies faced by the NHS and suggest solutions to them.
  • Help consultants to engage with policy making and management

The SHA works closely with DFNHS, and we have many joint members.
