Autumn Statement 2016: NHS Confederation representation to the Treasury

SAVE ITEM

07 / 10 / 2016

Our representation to HM Treasury for the 2016 Autumn Statement outlines four key proposals for how the government can support the NHS to achieve sustainability in a time of immense financial challenge. 

It is based on engagement with our networked organisations and members. These proposals build upon the submission we made as part of the 2015 Spending Review.

We believe these proposals will ease the financial pressure on the NHS, while limiting the burden on public services funding as a whole. We call on the government to:

  • guarantee additional funding that is already earmarked for 2017 is ring-fenced for transformation, specifically as investment in STPs
  • enable resources to be available for one-off investment in buildings and equipment from next year, by offering routes to greater public and private capital spending
  • bring NHS and social care funding into line and release £1.5 billion of Better Care Fund money immediately
  • stop cuts to public health and deliver adequate investment in prevention for the next four years, to ensure we work to keep people healthy and manage future demand upon the NHS.
