This event, organised by the Health Foundation and the Nuffield Trust, in collaboration with NIHR RSET and NIHR BRACE, will take place virtually over two half days on the 25 and 26 January 2022.

Bringing together representatives from the rapid evaluation community, including analysts, users and commissioners, the conference will look beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, thinking about the role of evaluation in the NHS recovery towards building a sustainable health care service. It will also provide an opportunity to share lessons learnt from recent and on-going evaluations.

Day 1: Recovery

Tuesday 25 January, 9.30–12.15

The first day will explore the role of digital technology and AI in the NHS recovery, discuss the challenges and opportunities that digital innovation bring when it comes to health inequality, and present some recent examples of how evaluation is informing current policy making.

Day 2: Sustainability

Wednesday 26 January, 9.30–12.15

Day 2 will explore lessons from rapid evaluations of evolving or new services aimed at assessing the sustainability of health services, discuss priority research areas to inform policy on environmental sustainability, and will present examples of recent evaluations focused on achieving a green and sustainable system.
