Register here to join our In Conversation Live with Dr Jennifer Dixon

Dr Jennifer Dixon, Chief Executive of the Health Foundation, will join us in the In Conversation Live series to talk about health policy in the UK, her life work on policy analysis and previous roles as Chief Executive at the Nuffield Trust, Director of Policy at The King’s Fund and policy advisor to the Chief Executive of the National Health Service.

Instead of charging for this webinar, we are asking people to support the Royal Society of Medicine in these uncertain times. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. Please consider making a donation for watching this webinar. Thank you for your generosity.

Dr Jennifer Dixon practised mainly paediatric medicine prior to a career in policy analysis. She has a Master’s in public health and a PhD in health services research from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. From 1990 to 1991, she was a Harkness Fellow in New York.

Dr Jennifer Dixon has served as a Board member of several national regulatory bodies: The Health Care Commission, the Audit Commission and the Care Quality Commission. She has led two national inquiries for the government: on the setting up of published ratings of the quality of NHS and social care providers in England (2013) and on the ratings for general practices (2015). She was also a member of the Parliamentary Review Panel for the Welsh Assembly Government, advising on the future strategy for the NHS and social care in Wales. She was awarded a CBE for services to public health in 2013 and a Doctor of Science from Bristol University in 2016. She has held visiting professorships at LSE and Imperial College Business School.
