Time to Think Differently launch


About this event

The health and social care system is facing an unprecedented funding squeeze and is coming under increasing pressure as the population ages and health needs change.

Our new Time to Think Differently programme aims to stimulate debate about the changes needed for the NHS and social care to meet the challenges of the future. We want to generate new thinking about how to address these challenges and deliver a transformation in services for patients.

To kick this off, we held a political debate with leading figures from each of the three main political parties.

Highlights from this event

Stephen Dorrell

Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell MP, Chair of the Health Select Committee, discusses what could happen if the current health and social care system doesn’t change and looks at how the NHS can respond to financial and quality challenges.
