Online course: The NHS explained: how the health system in England really works

October 8, 2018

The King’s Fund is running an online course, hosted on the FutureLearn website, which provides a detailed overview of how the NHS began, how it works today and how it all fits together. The course will start on 15th October 2018 and will run for four weeks. Each week the course will take around two hours to complete.

The topics that will be covered in the course are:

  • How the NHS in England is structured;
  • How different services work together to deliver health care in the NHS;
  • How funding flows through the system;
  • How well the NHS is doing;
  • How performance is measured in the NHS; and
  • Future challenges facing the NHS and how the system is changing in response to this.

The course is suitable for NHS and social care staff in England, including those who work in non-clinical roles as well as patients and the general public. Community pharmacy teams are encouraged to sign up for the course to increase their understanding on how the wider health and care landscape is shaped.
