NHS Employers is an organisation which acts on behalf of NHS trusts in the National Health Service in England and Wales. It was formed in 2004, is part of the NHS Confederation, and negotiates contracts with healthcare staff on behalf of the government.
In January 2004 the Department of Health announced the responsibility for negotiating staff terms and conditions was to be devolved by them to the NHS Confederation. In November 2004 NHS Employers was formed, and became the body that negotiates healthcare staff contracts on behalf of the government. They regularly collect and analyse the views of employers.
In September 2014, Danny Mortimer was named Chief Executive of NHS Employers, succeeding Dean Royles.
In 2005, most NHS trusts estimated that around half of their staff were suffering from workplace stress, but less than a third of health service managers that responded were able to say that their trusts had a stress management policy at the time.
In June 2014 they published statistics highlighting the proportion of women in various sections of the NHS workforce.
