In this video, Nigel Edwards, Chief Executive of the Nuffield Trust, introduces our new five-year strategic plan setting out how we will work to improve health care in the UK. The plan centres around a renewed focus on what policies mean on the ground and on bringing together policy-makers with frontline clinicians and managers.
As ambitious pledges on quality and efficiency intensify pressure on the service, and with the NHS facing the toughest financial squeeze for a generation, the Nuffield Trust will:
- Improve the evidence base that leads to better care for people in the UK through our research and analysis
- Use our independence to provide expert commentary, analysis and scrutiny of policy and practice
- Bring policy-makers and NHS staff together to raise issues and identify solutions.
