Our strategic priorities for 2020–25

Areas of focus for the next five years to improve health and care

This content relates to the following topics:

Our work spans the breadth of health and care policy and practice, giving us a unique understanding of the strategic context for health and care now and in the future. Within this, we will focus our resources on specific priorities where we believe we can maximise our impact. Working with our staff and people from across the health and care system, we have chosen three areas of focus for the next five years where we have the greatest opportunity to use our skills and resources to improve health and care.

Our strategic priorities

We will work with people in the health and care system to:

  • drive improvements in health and wellbeing across places and communities
  • improve health and care for people with the worst health outcomes
  • support people and leaders working in health and care.

Our broad knowledge of the health and care system and the relationships we hold across the system form the foundation of our work. We will continue to provide independent analysis, explain key issues and respond to developments across the breadth of health and care, making sense of a complex and changing landscape. This will underpin all the work we do. We will continue to use our independence to speak truth to power and will not be afraid to challenge vested interests.
