Notes to editors
Professor John Appleby, chief economist at The King’s Fund, will be giving oral evidence at the Health Select Committee’s one-off session on value for money in the NHS on 25 March. Following on from today’s Budget and the debate about how the NHS can weather the difficult financial climate it faces, the session is expected to take a wide-ranging look at NHS spending, productivity and value for money. The session, likely to be the Committee’s last in this parliament, will take place at 10.00am in the Wilson Room, Portcullis House, where Professor Appleby will give evidence alongside Andrew Haldenby, Director of Reform and Professor Bernard Crump, CEO of NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement.
