The government Spending Review

This event, hosted by UK think tank the Health Foundation will explore the Implications for NHS, public health and social care funding.

The UK government’s Spending Review will be published this month against a backdrop of economic uncertainty and a massive diversion of public finances towards combatting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please join us for this event where our panellists will reflect on what the one-year spending review might mean for health and social care funding. Our expert panel will analyse and discuss:

– The key headlines and fiscal implications of both the Spending Review and the Office for Budget Responsibility’s economic and fiscal outlook.

– The wider impacts on public health arising from the current economic outlook and what the Spending Review tells us about the prioritisation of the government’s ‘levelling-up’ agenda.

– To what extent the Spending Review begins to address the essential, multi-term NHS and social care spending commitments that have been made so urgent and obvious by the pandemic.
