The Independent Healthcare Advisory Services is a trade body for the independent healthcare sector. Impartial among its members throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, IHAS provides the mechanism for otherwise competitive members to share innovation, knowledge and expertise for the common good.
IHAS maintains the only impartial network serving the operational needs of the independent healthcare sector in all four UK countries.
The primary function of IHAS is in the area of operational policy and regulation as it affects the independent sector.
A combination of workstreams formed from members' experts and the small executive team at Centre Point helps develop policy recommendations and cooperative actions. These are communicated under the impartial IHAS name to members and to key organisations that effect the independent healthcare business environment.
