The NHS and social care: close to the edge?

Our latest series of breakfast events looked at the financial challenges facing the NHS and social care in the lead up to and immediately after the general election.

The events

Set against the backdrop of tightening NHS finances and cuts in local government funding, the latest series: 

  • examined the impact of the financial squeeze on health and care services and discussed how local leaders can respond to these pressures 
  • asked whether the health and social care system is facing a crisis, when the crunch is likely to come and what can be done to avert it.
