The next meeting of the European Health Policy Group (EHPG) will be hosted by The King’s Fund and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st September 2018. Booking details will follow soon.

EHPG is an informal, collegial and multidisciplinary network aiming to stimulate international collaboration and learning through comparative analysis of changes to health care systems in Europe. The group meets twice a year to discuss papers submitted by members on a topic of choice. Papers have to be submitted in full and will be presented by a discussant (not the author) followed by a discussion by the group.

The theme for this meeting will be on integration of all descriptions and we would welcome abstracts on:
Integration between primary and secondary care and between health and social care
Funding mechanisms and performance measurement structures that support the integration of care
The development of new models of care, including place based models and devolution
The experience of achieving integration of care through patient and public participation
We are also open to abstract submissions on other topics and will consider including them in the programme. We are always interested in applied policy research and encourage collaborations between authors from backgrounds in economics and political science.

Abstracts should be sent to Sarah Gregory ( by Sunday 24th June. We will aim to advise authors whether or not they have been successful by Friday July 6thth. The (strict!) deadline for papers is Friday 7th September 2018.
