The Nuffield Trust

The Nuffield Trust is an independent health think tank. We aim to help achieve a high quality health and social care system that improves the health and care of people in the UK by providing evidence-based research and policy analysis and informing and generating debate.

Standing independent both of the NHS and of politics, funded largely by its own endowment, and small enough to respond quickly to the volatile political and policy environment, we produce incisive commentary and research with three main aims:

  • To influence policy and practice by generating and synthesising information on health and social care to facilitate both better policy and better practice
  • To challenge and support those involved in planning and delivering healthcare to think more creatively and innovatively about how to adapt and redesign services to meet changing patient needs
  • To provide information on the evidence, statistics, facts and research which politicians and policymakers use in their interventions in the health and care system in the UK.

We seek to be respected and highly-regarded by our main audiences; to remain separate from but expert in the NHS and social care; and above all to use our independence, highly skilled staff and unique position to be a force for good in improving the health and social care of the UK population.
