Elicitation Workshop on Population Health Status

Activity: OtherTypes of External academic engagement - Research and Teaching at External Organisation


The government has committed to building more than 40 new hospitals by 2030. The New Hospital Programme, a partnership between DHSC and NHS E&I, aims to ensure that this new hospital infrastructure will meet the future needs of the population and that the required investment represents value for money.

Estimating future activity levels represents a critical step in the process of scaling
and designing new hospital infrastructure. The Strategy Unit has developed a model to support DHSC in making this assessment.

The workshop was concerned with how demographic changes translate into need or demand for healthcare and was focused on an elicitation exercise to estimate the proportion of disability free years of life a person at age 65 in 2035 is expected to have, together with associated uncertainty around this estimate.

The workshop consisted of the conveners (DHSC, SU), individuals running the elicitation exercise, and seven `experts'.
