LSE-Lancet Commission: The Future of the NHS


2018 heralds the 70th anniversary of the NHS, a time when the NHS is facing unprecedented demand, and a timely opportunity to take stock and consider where next for our health system. In response, the Department of Health Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science is collaborating withThe Lancet to form a Commission on the future of the NHS.


During an 18-month period, commissioners from a wide range of disciplines across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will focus on the pertinent challenges facing the NHS, culminating in the release of a report containing a series of policy recommendations in 2019. 


External organisations can submit written evidence to us on their perspectives regarding the biggest challenges facing the NHS.

The deadline has been extended to 31st October 2018.
