The Public Accounts Committee, of which Layla Moran is a member, has this week [3 April] published its report into NHS financial sustainability.

The committee concluded that:

  • Overall financial picture masks worrying disparities in performance of individual trusts and CCGs.
  • Staff shortages are a major obstacle to NHS financial viability and delivery of its Long Term Plan.
  • Still no clarity on future funding for adult social care, capital, public health and education.

Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran said:

The conclusions made by the Public Accounts Committee are damning. It’s clear that the Government’s long term plan is unsustainable window dressing. Ministers are failing to face down the real issues affecting our NHS. It is time to demand better.

We all know the NHS is under huge strain. The Government must realise that they need to address pressing issues such as staffing shortages of around 100,000 and the ever-rising demand before jumping blindly into long term planning.
