Long-term sustainability of NHS and Adult Social Care

The House of Lords Select Committee on the Long-term Sustainability of the NHS has published The Long-term Sustainability of the NHS and Adult Social Care.

The Committee highlights the ‘short sightedness’ of successive governments for failing to plan effectively for the long-term future of the health service and adult social care.  It makes a number of recommendations including the establishment of an independent Office for Health and Care Sustainability which will be able to identify clearly the healthcare needs of a changing population and the staffing and funding required to meet these needs.
