Future trends

Here is our comprehensive analysis of the trends that will influence the way health and social care is delivered in future. Our aim is to ensure that our Time to Think Differently programme is rooted in a clear understanding of the issues that will drive change. We also hope that this will be a useful resource for those thinking about service change.

For more on the significant trends and drivers that we believe will affect health and social care services over the next 20 years, read our future trends overview and view our future trends timeline. Please read our disclaimer about our trends work.
