In the final oral evidence session for its inquiry into how the financial squeeze will affect NHS and adult social care services, the Commons Health Committee asks minister Andrew Lansley how the recent spending settlement is likely to impact both on service provision and efforts to improve efficiency and productivity.
MPs will be keen to discuss with all the witnesses at this session how spending pressures on both health and social care are likely to affect the interface between these two services and, in particular, the practical delivery of social care to the aging and infirm.
At 10.30 am in The Wilson Room, Portcullis House
- Rt Hon Andrew Lansley CBE, MP, Secretary of State, Department of Health
- Richard Douglas CB, Director General, Policy, Strategy and Finance, Department of Health
- Sir David Nicholson KCB, Chief Executive, National Health Service
The Terms of Reference for the public expenditure inquiry were issued on 27 July 2010.
