The Nuffield Trust has a five-year strategy outlining how we will work with and support those leading change in the NHS during one of the most challenging periods in its history.
The Strategy, Improving UK health care outlines how we will build on our reputation for being a leading centre of research and policy analysis by devoting more time and energy to helping NHS staff and policy-makers develop solutions to the challenges facing the NHS. We are working with, and support, those leading change during this critical period.
In the strategy, we outline how we:
- Improve the evidence base that leads to better care for people in the UK through our research and analysis
- Use our independence to provide expert commentary, analysis and scrutiny of policy and practice
- Bring policy-makers and NHS staff together to raise issues and identify solutions. We run learning networks and have a panel of 100 health leaders that we regularly survey to ensure their views inform the work of policy-makers.
Above all, we aim to be a trusted and respected voice at a time of unprecedented challenge to the NHS and social care system.
Priority areas of work
As part of our new strategic direction, we have also rolled out five new priority areas of work in which we can add the most value. These are: quality of care; new models of health care delivery; workforce; older people and complex care; and NHS social care and reform.
Find out more details about our priorities on our programme of work page.
