Spokespeople and experts

We have a range of health and social care experts that act as spokespeople for the organisation. They regularly provide comment and analysis to the media, contribute articles and provide background briefings, as well as speaking at debates. If you are a journalist and would like to speak to one of our experts, find out more about our latest research or receive embargoed press releases, please contact our press and public affairs team.

Parliamentary activities

The King's Fund aims to support parliamentarians by providing independent analysis of health and social care policy. We work with MPs and peers from all the main parties by providing briefings for debates, holding events, giving evidence to parliamentary committees and working with the Associate Parliamentary Health Group and other all party parliamentary groups. Looking for something on a particular topic? See all of our parliamentary work.

Consultation responses

We regularly submit responses to consultations on health and social care-related issues.

Evidence submissions

From time to time The King's Fund is asked to give written or oral evidence to parliamentary committees including the Health Select Committee and the Treasury Select Committee.
