On the day briefing: November 2020 Spending Review

On 25 November the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, delivered the 2020 Spending Review alongside the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR)’s latest economic and fiscal outlook in the House of Commons. Although the government was due to hold a full Spending Review this year, the coronavirus pandemic has meant that the Chancellor decided the review would only cover 12 months from April 2021, with a full spending review to set multi-year budgets expected in 2021.


This briefing outlines the economic overview, key announcements for health and the wider economy and NHS Providers’ response.
