The Bevan Commission, hosted and supported by Swansea University, is Wales' leading health and care think tank. We bring together a group of international health and care experts to provide independent, authoritative advice to the Welsh Government and leaders in Wales, the UK and beyond. We ensure that Wales can draw on best healthcare practices from around the world while remaining true to the principles of the NHS as established by Aneurin Bevan.
We work with a wide range of health and care organisations, leading programmes of work, engagement activities, regularly publish reports, opinion pieces, blogs and more.

“Illness is neither an indulgence for which people have to pay, nor an offence for which they should be penalised, but a misfortune, the cost of which should be shared by the community.”

In place of fear, let’s build a healthier future and strengthen general practice and communities. This requires acknowledging those things we didn’t do well, and how to do them better in the future, as well as retaining some of the new practices that have emerged in the immense efforts to contain the pandemic.
While the pandemic is strangely having some positive effects, such as the introduction of universal basic income in some countries, and a drop in air pollution, it is generally also making disadvantaged and vulnerable people even more so.
