The Spending Review – what does it mean for health and social care?

The King’s Fund has come together the Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation to publish a briefing on the impact of the Spending Review on health and social care.

The briefing aims to ensure that the debate is informed by a clear and objective analysis of the funding position and its implications. It concludes that health spending will not rise by as much as expected when the NHS settlement was announced and that funding for social care will continue to fall short of meeting need.
