Funding petition launched

The NHS Confederation has launched a petition calling on the government to commit to a funding plan for health and social care to 2035. The petition, available on Parliament’s website, is entitled “Commit to a long-term funding plan for health & social care to the year 2035.”

It comes after the Prime Minister in March announced plans to come forward with a multi-year settlement and long-term plan for the NHS.

But the announcement lacked detail on what period the settlement would cover and whether it would include social care – 85 per cent of healthcare leaders in England believe it should.  

The organisation aims to gather over 100,000 signatures, surpassing the threshold needed for the petition to be considered for debate in Parliament.

The first part of a report into the funding needs of the UK’s health and care systems over the next 15 years will be published in mid-June.
