Key spokespeople

At The King's Fund we have experts on a wide range of health and social care issues.

We restrict our work to the NHS in England, and we aren't able to comment on specific patient cases, but we can offer on and off the record analysis on: primary care and GP services, care in hospitals, end-of-life care, community health services, NHS funding, patient choice, public health, long-term conditions, workforce planning, system reform, NHS governance and regulation, commissioning, social care, compassion in care and health inequalities.

If you would like to speak to one of our spokespeople, please contact our press office on 020 7307 2585 or email
