The King’s Fund has published a “Future of health and social care timeline”.
This interactive timeline indicates some of the key trends at work and a few predicted future milestones which are deemed likely to influence how health and social care will be structured, funded and delivered over the next 20 years. Topics touched-upon include changes in population make-up (our ageing population), the dementia time-bomb and advances in technology.
This interactive presentation complements the King’s Fund’s “Time to Think Differently Programme” which is a think-tank devoted to the big-picture societal-level “Future Trends” in health and social care which it would be unwise to ignore.
