Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation, will be joining Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, for a conversation about his career, the role of the NHS Confederation in society and during the COVID-19 pandemic, health inequalities, and the mental health post-COVID review. Matthew will also be discussing his new book Do we have to work? which outlines recent factors that have profoundly changed our relationship with work such as COVID-induced working from home, demand for government support, changing attitudes toward paternity leave, climate change and advances in AI.

Matthew joined the NHS Confederation as its Chief Executive in June 2021 and has had a distinguished career at the heart of public policy for the last 20 years. Before the NHS Confederation he was Chief Executive of the Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) for 15 years. During his tenure, Matthew transformed the RSA into a global institution, with 30,000 fellows and a high profile and influential research programme.
Before the RSA, Matthew was Chief Adviser on political strategy to Prime Minister Tony Blair and he also ran the Institute for Public Policy Research for 5 years. He is a widely known commentator on policy, politics and public service reform and regularly appears on national media programmes, including as a panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Moral Maze. He is series editor for the Thames and Hudson ‘Big Ideas’ books and his own book ‘Do we have to work?’ published earlier this year. He was commissioned by the Conservative government in 2016 to carry out an independent review into modern employment practices.
Matthew’s previous roles include trade union researcher, leading a health policy research unit, university research fellow and a County Councillor.
