The Summit is the Nuffield Trust's annual flagship event. Now in its fifteenth year, the 2023 Summit took place over the 2nd and 3rd March 2023.
Combining the latest evidence, analysis and thought provoking discussion, the Summit allowed leaders from across the health and care fields to come together to discuss how best to respond to the major challenges facing the NHS and social care, bridging the gap between evidence and action, policy and delivery.
This year’s agenda looked beyond the impact of the pandemic and examined some of the major long-standing problems and policy decisions that have contributed to the multiple challenges facing health and care today. This included sessions on health inequalities, staff burnout and the centralised culture in the NHS. Other discussions considered the vital intersection points between hospitals and community care, the ever-present concerns over social care reform, and the nature of the NHS's communication with patients and the public.
