Notes to editors
The King’s Fund issued a joint statement on health and social care with the Nuffield Trust and Health Foundation ahead of the Autumn Statement in November 2016.
The Fund’s latest quarterly monitoring report found that the NHS was heading into winter with its finances under pressure and performance against key targets at their worst level for more than a decade.
The final report of the Barker Commission, published in 2014, proposed a new settlement for health and social care.
