The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK. Our aim is a healthier population, supported by high quality health care that can be equitably accessed. We learn what works to make people’s lives healthier and improve the health care system.

Our policy team aims to support more evidence-informed policies on health and social care in the UK, contributing to better population health. We do this by analysing, understanding, and informing national policies on health and care, with a particular focus on the overall direction of the health system and how it is performing.

As Policy Fellow, you will contribute to all aspects of the policy team’s work, from fast-moving reactive work to longer-term policy analysis and research. You will focus on work related to health and care system reform, with a particular focus on primary care. Your work will include analysis of long-term policy issues in general practice (such as funding, workforce, and access), developing our monitoring of general practice performance data, and contributing to our portfolio of work on improving equity in primary care. Work on broader system changes will include analysis of national policy developments in the NHS, such as the new integrated care systems, and health system approaches to tackling inequalities.

You will have experience of carrying out policy analysis and using qualitative or mixed methods to help understand health and social care policy developments. In addition to good knowledge and curiosity about wider public policy, you will be able to work collaboratively with other teams across the Foundation.

All members of our policy team contribute to our written work - so the ability to write with clarity about complex issues is essential.
