Future Funding of NHS and Social Care in UK
Public seminar: 20th July
How to fund the NHS and social care in the UK has long been a subject of discussion and is now centre stage. But the debate has often taken place without much consideration of the details of international experience in the area – of which there is plenty.
As the demand for care rises inexorably, what are the key drivers and trends in arrangements for funding health and social care internationally? Allowing for differences in national contexts, what can UK learn from other countries to help decide how best to finance health and social care in future?
Hosted by the Health Foundation, this public seminar will present and discuss findings from a review of current thinking internationally, which has formed the first stage of a two-year research study on options for funding NHS and social care in the UK and their public acceptability. Presentations will be made by researchers from RAND Europe and the Personal Social Services Research Unit. The event will provide useful insights for anyone working directly or indirectly on issues related to health and social care funding in the UK, as well as for those with an interest in learning more.
Doors open at 17:00 on 20 July, and the event will commence at 17:30, followed by a Q&A session and discussion with the audience. The seminar will conclude at 19:00.
