The Health Foundation are inviting to tender for research into funding options for the NHS and social care in the UK. The aim is to provide an independent and robust evidence base that can be used to improve the quality of debate on the long-term funding of health and social care in the four countries of the UK.
The Health Foundation is seeking a provider to undertake a programme of research into health and social care funding trends, innovations and public acceptability in the UK. We are interested in identifying a range of feasible options for the future funding of health and social care in the UK in light of an anticipated gap between projected funding and the demand for services. We are seeking proposals from providers to undertake a multi-component research programme that will: explore international health and social care funding models and global trends in these models identify innovations and fresh thinking on health and social care funding models collate evidence on the strengths and weaknesses of different health and social care funding models assess the public acceptability of a small number of feasible health and social care funding models within the UK context. The provider will be responsible for designing, managing and conducting the research; analysing the findings; and producing a series of high quality coherent deliverables that synthesises key findings into a core set of lessons that are directly relevant to the UK health and social care sector. This will require a project team with an in-depth knowledge of a wide range of health and social care funding approaches internationally, strong qualitative and quantitative research skills, the ability to elicit opinion from a range of stakeholder audiences, develop effective working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, and write in a clear and compelling way.
Deadline for proposals: 7 March
Funding available: Up to £300,000
