This event, organised by the Health Foundation and the Nuffield Trust, in collaboration with NIHR RSET and NIHR BRACE, took place virtually over two half days on the 25 and 26 January 2022.

Bringing together representatives from the rapid evaluation community, including analysts, users and commissioners, the conference looked beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, thinking about the role of evaluation in the NHS recovery towards building a sustainable health care service. It also provided an opportunity to share lessons learnt from recent and on-going evaluations.
