The Strategy Unit
The Strategy Unit is supporting the national and local regional response to COVID-19.
Nationally – The Strategy Unit is working in a 5 partner collaboration with The Health Foundation, Kings Fund, Nuffield Trust and Imperial College Healthcare Partners to provide additional analytical support to the NHS nationally in its overall response to COVID-19.

The projects that are taken forward by the collaboration will be publicised to help the wider NHS avoid duplication.

Each STP/ICS has nominated a lead analyst for this network and they will be the conduit for requests. For information please contact
