Holly Holder

Holly is a Senior Policy Manager in the Commissioning Policy Unit at NHS England.

Until July 2017 she was a fellow in health policy at the Nuffield Trust. She is trained in a variety of research methods and specialises in qualitative research. Her projects at the Trust included evaluating integrated care systems, tracing the evolution of Clinical Commissioning Groups and comparative analysis of international health and social care systems.

Prior to joining the Trust in October 2011, Holly worked for the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion at the London School of Economics. Her work there focused on the measurement of equality and human rights in the UK, including inequalities in the outcomes, provision and receipt of health and social care.

Holly also worked on a year-long project exploring how issues related to choice, control and empowerment can be better measured in order to more accurately guide policy-makers. These projects were commissioned by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and the Government Equalities Office. She was also involved in a project exploring public attitudes towards redistribution using European survey data.

Before this, Holly worked as a researcher for a social housing management consultancy.

Holly has an MSc in Social Policy and Planning from the London School of Economics and is a trained cognitive interviewer.
