Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee: Implementing the NHS Long Term Plan

Wednesday 25 September 2019

In August 2019, we responded to the Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee's Implementing the NHS Long Term Plan - a call for comments.

The inquiry was aimed at assessing the case for investment in each of the following areas: capital expenditure on the NHS, education and training, social care, and public health, including the impact these areas of spending have on the implementation of the Long Term Plan.  

Our response emphasised the need for a substantial increase in training places for both our specialties, and called for increased investment in diagnostic and radiotherapy equipment and IT infrastructure. We also suggested AI, overseas recruitment, Cancer Alliances, i-Refer and the Payment by Results system as other areas for consideration.
