Our priorities

An independent health charity, we are a leading centre of research and analysis who understand the practical implications of policy-making, and work closely with clinicians and managers to help improve policy and practice. We focus our activities on five priority areas where we add most value: quality of care; the NHS workforce; new models of health care delivery; older people and complex care; and NHS and social care reform. We are a trusted and respected voice at a time of unprecedented challenge to the NHS and social care system.
