NHS Financial Sustainability

Our response to the Public Accounts Committee inquiry

2 April 2019

We outlined our support with the National Audit Office’s view that despite the announcement of an additional £20.5bn of NHS funding over the next five years, funding issues still constitute a threat to the long-term sustainability of the health service. We highlight that the main focus for NHS finances needs to be on system-wide, long-term funding issues rather finances at trust level. The implications of not addressing the NHS funding situation will be felt across many different sectors including the NHS workforce, public health, capital spending and social care.
