About this event

Polly Vizard, Tania Burchardt and Polina Obolenskaya will present findings from forthcoming papers on health and social care as part of the Social Policies and Distributional Outcomes research programme funded by Nuffield Foundation. The papers use the SPDO framework to evaluate developments between 2015 to the present, reporting on goals, policies, resources, inputs/outputs and outcomes, comparing the state of health and adult social care provision and policy at the end of the Coalition government period with the present. Policies of the Cameron, May and Johnson administrations are reviewed, together with an analysis of trends in public and private spending, and in service provision. Outcomes are assessed through a range of indicators. For health, these include measures of quality, trends in mortality, good health and non-medical determinants. For adult social care, these include measures of quality and safeguarding, healthcare integration and pressure on unpaid carers. The final sections of the papers identify challenges for the future and reflect on the barriers to effective policy making and implementation in these areas. This is an extended seminar, please note the start time of 4 pm. The first presentation will focus on health, and the second on adult social care. As usual, the seminar will be followed by an informal reception at 6 pm.

This event will take place in 32L 1.04, 1st Floor Conference Room, LSE, 32 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3PH. The building is labelled on the map.
