What does spending uncertainty mean for the health and care service?

What impact will the Spending Review delay have on the health and care service?

What impact will this delay have on the health and care workforce and on the system’s ability to provide safe and effective care for patients? What should the Government prioritise in the Spending Review?

While this has been a welcome development, in order to achieve this vision, a renewed approach is required.
