MPs take further evidence on health-related public expenditure

26 October 2010

This is the second oral evidence session for its inquiry into how the financial squeeze will affect NHS and adult social care services

The Health Committee will today ask representatives of NHS organisations and local authorities about the likely impacts of the recent spending review settlement on service provision and efforts to improve efficiency and productivity.

MPs will also look more closely at how spending pressures on both health and social care will affect the interface between these two services.
