The future of policy making: keynote speech by Sir Chris Wormald KCB

Thursday 25 April 2019, 13:00 - 14:00

The Institute for Government was delighted to welcome Sir Chris Wormald KCB, Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health and Social Care and Head of the Civil Service Policy Profession, to deliver a keynote speech.

Effective policy making is crucial to the operation of government and the civil service has pursued reforms to strengthen this area in recent years. This speech was an opportunity for Sir Chris to reflect on what the policy profession has achieved, and to set out priorities for high-quality policy making after Brexit.

The event was chaired by Dr Catherine Haddon, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government. There was an opportunity for audience questions.
