The recent Lord’s Select Committee Report on the long-term sustainability of the NHS, addresses concerns about views from various Government Bodies, failing to plan effectively for the future.
Health Services and Adult Social Care continue to take a hit, and current challenges require a long-term direction for the health system. The NHS are adamant goals for the future must take priority.
The country is almost half way through the Five Year Forward View plan, and there are still many concerns for the plan of action when the five years are up. The report also displayed some of the same challenges we have experienced for a while, with long-term funding a key concern and the research revealing that 55% of people expect the NHS to deteriorate as confirmation of this. It is integral that we regain confidence from our public by addressing this issue, and tackling it soon.
The Lords Select Committee report reflects an overarching consensus around the issues and what needs to change with the narrative for the NHS in its current form.
We must plan beyond 2020.
