Liz calls on Government to increase spending on the NHS and social care

[07/06/2018 | No comment]

On 27th May I wrote a joint article in the Observer with MPs Norman Lamb and Sarah Wollaston, which called on the Government to accept the findings of new research and spend significantly more on the NHS and social care. The study from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Health Foundation found spending on the NHS needs to grow by 4% a year if services are going to improve, and social care needs a 3.9% annual rise just to meet demographic pressures.
