Organising healthcare

Programme aim and objectives

The provision of comprehensive, patient-centred, coordinated, safe and accessible care continues to be widely regarded as the foundation of the NHS. There is, however, currently a drive to ‘transform’ the organisation, coordination and integration of care to better meet the needs of the population and to address the growing, and increasingly unsustainable, pressures faced by the NHS. We aim to inform and support this by:

  1. Conducting rigorous and research-informed evaluations which shed light on the implementation and impact of change initiatives across health and social care
  2. Supporting partner organisations to generate and evaluate innovative projects seeking to better integrate primary care with other parts of the health and social care system with the potential to make a real difference to health and social care
  3. Providing commissioners and providers with evidence to support decision making to deliver effective and sustainable future service design and configuration.
