Policy Connect's Health Manifesto - Six Health Priorities for Britain's Next Government

Policy Connect’s Health team have launched ‘Six Health Priorities for Britain’s Next Government’, a manifesto to examine two of the most pressing policy issues facing the United Kingdom today – health and social care.   

The challenges and inequalities brought about by the pandemic, an ageing population, and a workforce crisis are critical issues that must be addressed to improve the quality and access to health and social care in the UK.  

This Health Manifesto has been developed with inputs and engagements from important stakeholders in the health and social care sector and is based on evidence from our research, events, and other programme of activities.  

Whilst there is a plethora of health challenges that require attention, we have selected the following six priorities that if addressed, could help place the UK on course to a world-class health and social care system: 

  • Delivering a sustainable healthcare workforce. 

  • Reforming Mental Health care. 

  • Fostering innovation in research through greater partnerships. 

  • Strengthening technological and data informed partnerships to improve health for all. 

  • Empowering women’s health. 

  • Prioritising prevention in health and social care.
