The House of Lords Select Committee on the Long-term Sustainability of the NHS has today published its Call for Evidence.
Lord Patel, who chairs the Committee, said:
“It seems that on an almost daily basis we hear stories of one NHS crisis or another but we have not yet had a robust long-term analysis of the challenges it faces.
“The NHS is one of our most beloved institutions with principles that people value and admire but like any public service it must adapt. We need to find long term solutions.
“Oor inquiry will get to the core of the challenges that the NHS will face over the next two decades and beyond. We hope that it will lead to a cross-party consensus on the way forward for a sustainable approach to better healthcare.”
The deadline for submitting written evidence is 23 September 2016.
