The start of the new Parliament provides the opportunity for political and health leaders to develop a long-term plan that puts the NHS and social care system on a sustainable footing.
As part of our role to deliver evidence to support better health policy, the Nuffield Trust has produced this briefing, which outlines 10 key health and social care priorities for the new Government. It outlines the challenges we believe are critical to the longer-term success of the health and social care system, and which the new administration will need to prioritise.
The briefing draws on our published and forthcoming research, expert opinion and insights from key figures in the health and social care system, including through our quarterly leaders’ surveys. It follows a series of briefings we published in the run up to the 2015 general election.
