Beyond the Fog was prepared for the Royal Free Charity in early 2018. It has since been presented at a number of conferences and to senior executives across the sector. It appears that the report fills a gap for long-term, system-level thinking for the future of healthcare. It is a first step at answering the question: “what will healthcare look like in the future when you bring all the innovation trends together”.
As a result of extraordinary feedback from the sector, we are now planning to see how far we can take this initiative. With the support of a fantastic Steering Group, and engaging experts across a widely defined healthcare sector, we intend to further develop the vision and to create a movement for longer term thinking in healthcare.
We’re pulling together a calendar of activities; looking for funding; and setting up a not-for-profit think tank completely independent of vested interests to further develop the thinking; at the same time as continuing to lobby, present to and work with the sector directly.
We hope you will want to be involved and support us whether you are a policy maker, a manager within the system, a healthcare professional, an expert in one area of health or technology development, have a commercial interest in healthcare, are a philanthropist or a member of the public who wants to see a future where healthcare remains sustainable for everyone. Everyone can play a role in this debate; everyone needs to do so if we are to develop a healthcare system fit for the 21st century.
If you feel you are able to support us in this vitally important activity, either financially (we’re urgently looking for funding in order to keep developing the initaitive) or with resources and your time and would like to be involved from the start, please do get in contact. We’d be delighted to hear from you.
