Working paper: Public acceptability of health and social care funding options
As part of our wider project exploring funding options for the NHS and social care in the UK, this working paper explores the preferences of the general public when it comes to raising additional funds. It presents findings from a discrete choice experiment carried out with 2,756 respondents across the UK, and draws out the policy implications.
Reframing the conversation on the social determinants of health
Our new briefing presents the findings from research carried out by FrameWorks Institute, comparing public understanding, expert opinion and media narrative about what makes us healthy. The research identifies four challenges communicators must tackle to increase public understanding and build support for the policies needed to reduce health inequalities.
Health funding – finally something we can agree on
We know that more funds for health and social care are needed, but how would the UK public prefer them to be raised? Jon Sussex explores the findings from our new study.
The Marmot Review 10 Years On
With growing evidence that the years of life lost to inequalities is increasing, the Health Foundation is working with Professor Michael Marmot and his team at the Institute of Health Equity to review how health inequalities have changed and examine what progress has been made on tackling the social determinants of health. Almost 10 years on from the landmark Marmot Review, read Michael’s guest blog and find out more about the new review from Jennifer Dixon and Michael in our short film.
Catch-up: Spreading innovation and improvement in the NHS
You can now catch up on our webinar which focused on the challenges of spreading innovations and improvement in health care across the NHS. Our panel of experts delved into the findings of our recent The spread challenge report and offered tips on how to support the more effective uptake of new ideas.
Catch up: System mapping as a tool for action
In December, we hosted a webinar for public health professionals exploring how to use system mapping as a tool for action. You can now watch this on-demand and hear practical examples of how system mapping has helped people tackle complex public health challenges, from the UK and further afield. You’ll also learn how to start using these approaches and apply ‘system thinking’ in your own work in public health.
