The outcome of the 2015 Spending Review will profoundly shape NHS and social care services in England over the rest of this decade. Our three organisations have come together to provide the Health Select Committee with a clear, objective, and independent view of its implications.
This joint submission presents our shared view on five elements of the Terms of Reference drawn up by the Committee for its inquiry into the impact of the Spending Review. These are: the distribution of funding over the Spending Review period; efficiency and transformation; cuts to non-NHS England budgets; social care funding; and quality and access to care. Each of our three organisations will also submit supplementary evidence, drawing more directly on selected research we have carried out individually and addressing the remaining Terms of Reference.
