+ PUBLIC POLICY PROJECTS
A FORUM FOR DEBATING THE BIG ISSUES IN HEALTH AND CARE


Public Policy Projects was established by Matthew Young to provide a meeting place for practitioners and policy makers who are interested in health and care policy. It brings together senior management and professional leadership, public and private sector, central and local government, politicians and commentators. It asks them to leave baggage at the door and address the needs of patients and service users.

Is British care as good as it should be?

How does it compare with the best in the world?

Can we learn from the success of others?

What are the obstacles to progress?

How can they be overcome?

It aims to be practical, without being cynical; optimistic without being unrealistic.

+ HOW IT WORKS


Public Policy Projects is not aligned to any political, commercial or professional interest. It is committed to addressing the difficult questions. It is led by Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell, former Secretary of State for Health and former Chair of the House of Commons Health Select Committee. It draws on the expertise of its members and guests and presents distilled and pithy conclusions.

+ MEMBERS' BREAKFASTS


Six times each year Public Policy Projects invites its Members to join with other key opinion formers to discuss key strategic issues facing the health and care sector.

Members' Breakfasts have an established reputation as a key Meeting Place for the health and care community.

Principal guests in 2015 have included Simon Stevens, Sir Malcolm Grant, George Freeman, Tim Kelsey, Kingsley Manning and Anita Charlesworth.

Each member is invited to bring up to 2 guests to engage in the discussion.

Each breakfast focusses on the strategic issues which face the health and care sector. The discussion is conducted under the Chatham House Rule; points of view may be reported, and commented upon, but not ascribed to any individual or organisation.

Member's Breakfasts provide the opportunity to speak the truth in a safe space.
 
Each breakfast is followed up with a Health Policy Viewpoint which records the main themes discussed at the breakfast, and which is circulated to all members and attendees.

+ SPONSORED PROJECTS


In addition to arranging strategic discussions at the Members' Breakfasts, Public Policy Projects will follow up key themes with more detailed work-streams which focus on the practical issues raised at the Breakfasts.

These projects will be separately sponsored, but retain the core commitment to independence which is the essence of Public Policy Projects.

Each Project will be followed up with a Health Policy Viewpoint which will be circulated to all members.

+ LOOKING TO THE FUTURE...


People have written pamphlets since the days of John Evelyn.

In the digital age the policy community expects to be able to generate a conversation around new ideas.

Public Policy Projects will develop a digital forum which will allow Health Policy Viewpoints to be the subject of wider discussion.
