NIHR commissioned report from RAND - Future of Health

  Created on Monday, 09 Oct 2017.

RAND Europe was commissioned by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to gather and synthesise stakeholder views on the future of health and healthcare in England in 20 to 30 years’ time. The aim of the work was to gain an understanding of a wide range of stakeholders’ views on the differences and trends affecting the future of health and healthcare as well as of the key drivers of change, in order to inform strategic discussions about the future priorities of the NIHR  and the health and social care research communities more widely. This work is based on an online survey of a range of stakeholders in health and social care in the United Kingdom (UK), including policy experts, academics, professional bodies, advocacy organisations and patient representatives.
