Natasha Curry joined the Nuffield Trust in 2011 as a Senior Fellow in Health Policy. Prior to joining the Trust, she worked as a Fellow in Health Policy at the King’s Fund.
Natasha has an interest in international health and social care systems and is leading the Trust’s work on social care. She has researched and published on a range of topics, including clinical commissioning, integrated care, primary care, long-term conditions and NHS reform.
As part of her work on social care, Natasha has been to Japan twice to study its long-term care system and published a paper in May 2018 reflecting on the lessons England could learn as it considers the future of its own social care system. She also published a paper in 2019 on the German long-term care system in order to further inform the debate about the options available to England. During Covid-19, she has collaborated with the WHO on their review of international responses in social care and is embarking upon research into what England can learn from other countries’ approaches to managing infections in long-term care settings.
Previously, Natasha has worked as a consultant in health at Matrix Research & Consultancy Ltd and as the Evaluations Officer at the Chinese National Health Living Centre, prior to which she spent time living and working in China.
