George is an Associate Director at IFS, and leads the Institute’s work on healthcare. He joined the IFS in 2011. His research focuses on understanding variation in the returns from healthcare, exploring how patient outcomes vary across different healthcare providers and across different patient characteristics. Recent work includes an analysis of the spillovers between different types of health and social care, and quantifying the impact of waiting times targets in public hospitals. Ongoing projects examine the labour supply decisions of NHS hospital staff, analyse variation in the productivity of NHS staff, and explore inequalities in the use of publicly funded healthcare in England.
