The National Health Service and social care system have been central institutions in British life since the 1940s. In a time of unprecedented change, their future is uncertain. Health and social care systems in other countries, whether high-, middle- or low-income, face similar challenges. Short-term pressures and crises capture the attention of press, politicians and public. But there is an urgent need to consider the long-term question of ‘What kind of system can best provide the health and care of the future, whilst remaining both financially and politically sustainable?”

GTC Fellows (some already associated with existing or past GTC academic initiatives) have established a new termly seminar series to explore this question with a focus on capturing different perspectives and generating debate. The aim is to build on participation and interest in the seminars to establish and actively support a broader network of researchers and practitioners that can help to develop useful synergies between research, policy and practice with a long-term, strategic focus.

The Health and Care Studies seminar series was launched on 22 May with Dr Josep Figueras, Director of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, speaking on “HOW DO WE KEEP GOING? Addressing the Long Term Challenges Facing Health Systems Across Europe” and Nigel Edwards, Chief Executive of the Nuffield Trust, providing insight as the discussant.  You can read GTC Senior Research Fellow Trish Greenhalgh’s blog about the launch seminar here.
