Adam Roberts: Future funding scenarios for the NHS and social care in England

20,722 views

Published on

In this audio slideshow, Adam Roberts, Research Analyst at the Nuffield Trust, examines the findings of an Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) report, funded by the Nuffield Trust.

The report looks at the financial outlook for the NHS when the current unprecedented period of broadly flat NHS funding in real terms ends in 2014-15.

It also considers the future of social care spending given that demographic pressures are increasing demand for care services and the recent Commission on Funding of Care and Support (the Dilnot Commission) called for reform of the system for funding social care in England that would increase the cost to the taxpayer.

The full findings of this work have been published in the report: 'NHS and social care funding: the outlook to 2021/22' (July 2012), written by Rowena Crawford and Carl Emmerson of the IFS for the Nuffield Trust.

  14. 14. Conclusions• From 2010/11 to 2014/15 the NHS faces its tightest budget of last 50 years• Beyond then, even maintaining share of national income will be tough• Period of austerity likely to extend well into the next decade• Only a long-term freeze in other public service budgets/large tax increases would allow NHS funding to grow at historic levels• Pressures on health and social care likely to rise (see future reports)• Without unprecedented productivity gains, there is likely to be a rapid growth in the gap between the demand for care and the ability to provide high-quality services © Nuffield Trust
