NHS England and NHS Improvement is currently prioritising epidemiological and medical research to inform Covid-19 planning. However there will be a considerable need in the coming weeks and months for more health services research and analysis to understand the impacts of the Covid-19 outbreak on the health system and population health. This will help plan for the period after the immediate crisis has passed.

A page has been created for NHS analysts and policy teams on the FutureNHS website to help improve awareness of and access to relevant academic and third sector research and analysis. On this page, there will be links to publicly accessible websites that showcase evidence relevant to Covid-19 and post-Covid-19 health care planning.   

If your research or analysis is open access and is on a publicly available website, please send an email to who will add a link to your page on the FutureNHS site. Please note that NHS staff do not usually have access to academic articles that are not open access.
