- Our Future Health Secured? A review of NHS funding and performance, published by the King’s Fund in September 2007, looked at where NHS money has been spent, what it has achieved, whether government policy has promoted effective use of the resources, and what needs to happen next. It addresses the failure to meet obesity targets on page 175.
- In December 2007 the King’s Fund launched a programme on public health called Kicking Bad Habits. Details about that programme, including a paper discussing the effectiveness of financial incentives for promoting healthier behaviours, can be found on the website.
- The King’s Fund is an independent charitable foundation working for better health, especially in London. We carry out research, policy analysis and development activities, working on our own, in partnerships, and through funding. We are a major resource to people working in health and social care, offering leadership development programmes; seminars and workshops; publications; information and library services; and conference and meeting facilities.
