We are working towards securing and maintaining a sustainable settlement for health and care services.
The 2015 Spending Review had an important role to play in this, providing a clear commitment to support the NHS in becoming more sustainable and establishing a financial settlement to develop new models of care.

What we've been doing
- Over the summer, we set out the important questions that needed to be addressed in the 2015 Spending Review. This focused the debate on how additional NHS funding will be phased in this parliament, how it will support transformation, dealing with the funding gap in social care and being clear about the conditions needed to ensure £8 billion is enough.
- Since then, we’ve been meeting with HM Treasury and the Department of Health to discuss what our members need in the 2015 Spending Review to support them to deliver the Five Year Forward View. We’ve also aligned with other organisations to develop a set of recommendations with support across the whole system.
- In September, we issued our formal representation to HM Treasury. This included 10 central recommendations supported by detailed evidence and research on their costs and benefits.
- We have joined together with the care and support sector, including the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, to make a joint call on the need to address the funding in social care in the 2015 Spending Review.
