The King's Fund are holding an essay competition to stimulate new thinking and writing about the future of the NHS. They invite you to write your own essay exploring a future scenario for the NHS, considering the potential impact on the health system and wider society.
An expert panel of judges will select the winning essay, which will be published on The King’s Fund’s The NHS if… website. The top prize is £500, plus a free place at a The King’s Fund conference of your choice in 2017. There will be one runner-up, who will receive a free conference place and publication of their essay on The NHS if… website.
The essay competition is open to anyone with an interest in the future of health and care in England. You might work in health and care, or be a student of health policy and management, science communication or wider social and political issues. Or you may be a patient or carer who can use your own experience to help explore a future scenario for the NHS.
