Where an independent charity (or non-NHS organisation) is the lead organisation responsible for delivering information to patients and the public and the NHS is a supporting partner, the lead organisation’s logo should go at the top and their visual style should dominate. The NHS logo should go bottom right.
If independent charities (or non-NHS organisations) want to use the NHS logo on national patient and public information they have produced, permission should be sought from the NHS Identity team. Similarly, if independent charities (or non-NHS organisations) want to use the NHS Identity on a local information leaflet or guide, they should contact the relevant local NHS organisation for permission to use their organisation’s logo. If a number of NHS organisations are involved follow the guidelines for partnership branding.
