Sean Worth was a special adviser to the Prime Minister David Cameron[1] until June 2012. He left to join the think tank Policy Exchange to head up a six-month project on public services reform. [2]

Background

Worth has a PhD in labour market policy from the University of Bath[3] and worked as an academic specialising in social and economic policy. Following this, he spent two years as an adviser on social policy for the Conservative Party. In September 2005, Worth joined the Association of British Insurers (ABI) as a financial inclusion adviser. Additionally, he specialised in employment, welfare and inclusion policy consultancy "for a range of public and private sector organisations".[4]

Worth returned to the Conservatives as Head of the Policy Unit in 2008.[5]

Health reform

Worth is widely credited with devising the Tory proposal for a voluntary insurance scheme to fund long term care for the elderly. His brief now covers communication between the Department of Health and Downing Street, something likely to be aided by a good working relationship with Andrew Lansley’s policy adviser, Bill Morgan. Politically astute and dedicated to market ideology, Worth will be relied on to push through reform if the DH stumbles.[6]

Policy Exchange project June 2012

Worth will report to Policy Exchange director Neil O'Brien from June 2012 lead a six-month project on public services reform, which 'aims to use innovations to improve the quality of public services at a time where budgets are being cut'. [2]
