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?


A full three-year Spending Review, originally planned for this Autumn, has been delayed until 2020. This Spending Review would provide certainty for critical parts of the health service that are not covered by the £20bn of additional NHS funding pledged by the Government last year. 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?

Where next for Social Care?

Can enough public and political support be built for a solution to the problems of social care?


Social care emerged from the shadow of the NHS during the 2017 election to hit the headlines. Since then, pressures have mounted. Demand and staff turnover have risen. Care providers are struggling to stay afloat. Emergency cash injections have eased immediate pressures, but the underlying problems remain. Can the much-delayed social care green paper tackle these issues? Can enough public and political support be built for a solution?

Is there a better way to manage the relationship with the consultancy, design and construction businesses involved? How can we improve accountability when things go wrong?
