The independent Lord Darzi Review aims to examine the state of quality in health and care services on the NHS’s 70th birthday and make recommendations for future funding and reform of the system.

Launched in December 2017, the Lord Darzi Review is aiming to:

  1. examine the quality – meaning safety, effectiveness, timeliness, efficiency and equitability – of care in the NHS and social care service today
  2. establish the funding settlement and reforms needed to drive improvements in the quality of care in the coming decade.

The review will publish its findings to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the NHS in summer 2018, with a number of working papers published in the run-up to the final report.

This call for evidence provides an opportunity for key stakeholders to feed into the review's findings. Please send responses to
