The Nuffield Trust is an independent health charity. Here we clarify the links between us and other Nuffield related organisations.

The Nuffield Trust was established as the Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust in 1940 by Viscount Nuffield (William Morris), the founder of Morris Motors.

In 1998 the Trustees of the Nuffield Trust agreed that our official name should more fully reflect our purposes and, in consultation with the Charity Commission, adopted the name 'The Nuffield Trust for Research and Policy Studies in Health Services', retaining 'The Nuffield Trust' as our working name.

The Nuffield Trust is independent of the other charities and other organisations bearing Lord Nuffield's name, and therefore has no direct connections with these organisations. These include:

  • Nuffield Health
    Nuffield Health is a health care and social enterprise charity. In May 2013, Nuffield Health launched a retail bond to support investment in health care services in the UK. For further information please visit or call 0871 664 9236 (open Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm). The Nuffield Trust has no connection with this initiative.
