NHS Providers response to the spending round

04 September 2019

Responding to the spending round for 2020/21 announced by chancellor Sajid Javid, the chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson said:

“We welcome the clear sign from the government today that the NHS is a key domestic priority. We have been calling for a new approach to investment in our NHS, its buildings and infrastructure, so it is good to see that the government has committed to do this at the next spending review.

“NHS trusts will also welcome the additional funding for training and development and public health, and will be relieved to see some extra money earmarked for overstretched social care services. But today’s announcements, whilst welcome, just focus on the immediate short-term. We still need concrete long-term funding commitments on capital, public health and education if the NHS is to deliver its long term plan.”
