We are pleased to announce that the Nuffield Trust is to be part of an expert group with The King’s Fund, The Health Foundation and the Institute for Fiscal Studies, working alongside the BBC to address five of the most important questions facing the NHS at 70.

It is the first time all four organisations have come together in this way and, with input from other experts, we will explore the following questions:

  • How good is the NHS?
  • Does the NHS need more money?
  • Are we expecting too much from the NHS?
  • How can we do better on social care?
  • What will new technology mean for the NHS and its patients?

The group's independent analysis, to be published in late June shortly before the anniversary, will be a major contribution to the national conversation around the NHS at 70, and will help to inform the BBC's coverage of the NHS at a crucial time.
