Submission to the Comprehensive Spending Review

27 / 10 / 2020

In late 2020, the government announced its intention to publish a Comprehensive Spending Review, setting out the government’s spending plans. However, due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, it remains unclear whether the government will commit to a multi-year, or a one-year settlement.

After engaging with NHS leaders, the NHS Confederation has written a CSR submission to the Treasury outlining what the health and care system needs to get back on track and transform services.

Key points

  • Health and care, and health inequality, should be at the heart of the Comprehensive Spending Review.
  • COVID-19 means demand is up, capacity is down and waiting lists are spiralling.
  • The NHS needs additional investment to stabilise, improve resilience and deliver long-term ambitions.
  • The government must support the current workforce and improve future supply. 
  • We need a sustainable social care system, backed up by reform and a long-term funding settlement.

We have also produced a four-page summary of the full document.
