Economic Sustainability


Aims and Scope


To further understanding of demand and supply influences on the economic sustainability of health and care systems by using research evidence to co-design solutions and evaluating initiatives to increase economic sustainability.


The theme will address the management of demand and sustainability of health and care services, as well as financial and workforce sustainability, in the face of well-known pressures on the health and social care systems.



Key Focuses


  • To contribute to the design of the Person-Centred and Community Approaches programme, which will focus on alternatives to formal care. The programme will involve social prescribing and community asset development to address loneliness, low levels of mental health, isolation, and debt management.
  • Support the GMHSCP's proposals for further devolution from April 2021 through reviewing the perverse incentives and unintended outcomes of national performance targets.
