Health and Social Care Committee

NHS Long-term Plan: legislative proposals inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Report published on Monday 24 June 2019.  Awaiting Government Response.

Due to the general election on 12 December 2019 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 6 November, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

Report published


Following its report last year on Integrated care: organisations, partnerships and systems  the Health and Social Care Committee has decided to scrutinise the legislative proposals put forward to support the implementation of the NHS Long-term Plan. Pre-legislative scrutiny of this kind aims to enhance the quality of legislation brought before the House.

The Committee’s inquiry will be conducted in two phases. The first phase will focus on the detailed proposals published by NHS England and NHS Improvement on Thursday 28 February, with oral evidence scheduled to take place during April 2019. Full details of the proposals are available online.
