In February 2018, we responded to the Public Accounts Committee inquiry on sustainability and transformation in the NHS. 

There is no clear evidence that the model of the NHS, predominantly tax funded and free at the point of use, is unsustainable. However, there is plenty of evidence that continuing to deliver services in the way that we do, and our expectations of what services can deliver with the funding available is not sustainable.

We outlined briefly our body of evidence on NHS finances, the profile and trends of the NHS workforce and lessons from the new care models programme.
