Policymaking – helping or hindering the NHS?


How policymaking could be made more effective to tackle the huge challenges facing the NHS was the subject of our annual Teddy Chester lecture.

Dr Jennifer Dixon CBE, Chief Executive of The Health Foundation, shared her observations of a career in the NHS with guests as she sought to “make sense of the noise” around the extremely complex health service.

Jennifer spoke at length about the importance of recognising and developing long run change against the backdrop of short-term challenges and political cycles, while she also discussed the new leadership structure of the NHS, the role that business education can play in terms of driving policymaking, and the prospects for health and social care devolution in Greater Manchester.
