In this lecture, Sir Chris Wormald will discuss the art of policy making and how can academics achieve policy impact.
As the Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health and Social Care and Head of the UK Civil Service Policy Profession, Sir Chris Wormald has unrivalled expertise and insight into the world of policy making. This event is an exciting opportunity to get an insight into how decisions are made, whether or not you work on health issues. If you are thinking about how to achieve policy impact but are not sure what policy makers want or how to engage them (or if you are just interested to hear how decisions are made), come along for a unique chance to hear from someone at the very heart of government.
Sir Chris will focus on his experience of the policy making process, and in particular how collaboration between government and academics can lead to more successful policy outcomes in health and elsewhere.
Sir Chris’s presentation will be followed by a discussion chaired by Stephen Meek, Director of the Institute for Policy and Engagement.
Places are limited so don’t miss out on this one-off opportunity.
This event will take place 12-1pm on Friday 12 July in the Medical School Lecture Theatre A3, Queen’s Medical Centre.
