Our charitable status
Nuffield Health is a not-for-profit organisation limited by guarantee, without share capital. We must behave like a not-for-profit organisation and follow the rules of having this status.
We are a trading charity and we provide an important public benefit. We don’t fundraise. We charge for our services and then use our profits to invest in programmes that will further drive public benefit and help us reach more people.
Nuffield Health's strategy is determined by our board of governors, who are both directors of the organisation and the trustees of the not-for-profit organisation. The governors delegate day to day executive authority to the group chief executive.
Nuffield Health also has unpaid non-executive members, comprised of individuals who played a significant role in the development of Nuffield Health, or in healthcare generally and who hold the board to account at each annual general meeting.
Nuffield Health has a special dispensation from Companies House, allowing us to avoid appending the "Ltd" label generally used.
