As the recent Health and Social Care Act (2012) shows, the NHS has been subject to much change since its inception in 1948. Having recently celebrated its 64th birthday, the NHS is entering another period of significant change.
To mark these changes, and to show them in their historical context, the Nuffield Trust has launched an interactive timeline that brings the NHS’ history to life, charting the evolution of this public institution from its inception in the post-war years through to the present day. The timeline outlines the current NHS reforms and how they came about, while also highlighting the future changes to the system that are expected.
To use the timeline, simply scroll through the decades, access further information, and watch embedded videos to familiarise yourself with the history of this dynamic institution. The timeline is a live resource and will be updated when further significant changes and developments take place. We believe the timeline to be a solid, accessible and fun educational tool that can be beneficial for the users of your network and anyone interested in health care, policy and public services in the UK.

You might also be interested in some key slides that we have developed to help illustrate the main changes to management, accountability and funding structures resulting from the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The slides are available to download so that the images can be reused in people’s own presentations: http://www.nuffieldtrust.org.uk/talks/slideshows/new-structure-nhs-england.For further information contact:
