NHS Improvement (NHSI) is a non-departmental body in England, responsible for overseeing the National Health Service's foundation trusts and NHS trusts, as well as independent providers that provide NHS-funded care.

NHSI supports providers to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable. A previous body – also called NHS Improvement – was set up in April 2008 to drive clinical service improvement,[1] but was merged into NHS Improving Quality in 2013[2]

From 1 April 2016, NHS Improvement is the operational name for an organisation that brings together: Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, Patient Safety (from NHS England), National Reporting and Learning System, Advancing Change Team and Intensive Support Teams.

In 2018 it became clear that NHSI, while maintaining its statutory independence, was for practical reasons to be merged with NHS England, and seven "single integrated regional teams" would be jointly established.[3]

Leadership

Since 1 April 2019, NHS Improvement and NHS England work together as a single organisation in the management of England's National Health Service, which has had implications for the organisations' leadership.[4]
