Mind The Gap: Health and Care Funding

England’s health and care system is facing one of the most challenging periods in its history. Since the financial crisis there has been a deterioration in the governments fiscal position which has translated into much lower growth in the NHS’s budget and significant cuts in social care funding. 

This squeeze in resources comes during a period where demands on both services continue to grow at pace fuelled by a growing and ageing population; rising staff costs and new technologies and innovations coming on stream.  

The result is a large and growing funding gap now and in the future. This event will kick of a new programme of work on this topic by asking how we solve the health and care funding crisis with the outputs feeding into the governments upcoming Green Paper on social care and pre-budget planning. 

Speakers will include: 

  • Matthew Swindells - National Director: Operations and Information, NHS England
  • Norman Lamb - Former Minister of State for Health, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Health
  • Sally Burlington - Head of Policy, LGA
