Health and social care: what are the challenges after COVID?

You can download the event's slides below:


What impact has the pandemic had on the NHS? How much activity has been missed, and what does this mean for waiting lists and the elective care backlog? What are the likely pressures on the NHS going forward - not just from COVID-19, but also from an ageing population? How much funding might be needed to meet these? And will the government's latest reforms really be enough to 'fix' social care?

This hour-long online event will feature a series of short talks by IFS researchers and policy experts from the Health Foundation and King's Fund on post-COVID challenges for the health and social care system. Talks will be followed by time for your questions.

Chaired by IFS Research Economist Ben Zaranko, it will feature presentations from:

  • Stephen Rocks, Health Foundation
  • Max Warner, Institute for Fiscal Studies
  • Sally Warren, King's Fund
