    Key points Average day-to-day health spending in the UK between 2010 and 2019 was £3,005 per person – 18% below the EU14 average of £3,655. If UK spending per person had matched the EU14 average, then the UK would have spent an average of £227bn a year on health between 2010 and 2019 – £40bn higher than actual average annual spending during this period (£187bn). Matching spending per head to France or Germany would have led to an additional £40bn and £73bn (21% to 39% increase respectively) of total health spending each year in the UK. Over the past decade, the UK had

    "Patients are my top priority. Purposefully, this plan is ‘Our plan for patients’. The NHS has rightly been recognised with the award of the George Cross and the admiration of the British people, particularly for getting us through COVID-19. Most of the time, patients have a great experience, but we will not paper over the problems that we face. Some of our challenges have been exacerbated by the pandemic, and we expect backlogs to rise before they fall as more patients come forward for diagnosis and treatment. As we face these immense challenges, I am determined to be the champ

    What needs to happen Above all we need to be honest with ourselves about the extent of the problems and the implications of the solutions. That requires an open and honest national conversation among politicians, patients and the public, healthcare professionals and policy makers, one which leads to action and meaningful change. What does a reformed system look like? A system fit for the twenty-first century must centre the needs of the whole person and of the whole population. This requires: Expanding workforce numbers Improving patient access to care across all settings.

    Saturday 17 September 2022 marks the fourth annual World Patient Safety Day. This event was established by World Health Organization (WHO) as a day to call for global solidarity and concerted action to improve patient safety.

WHO describes it as follows: “Patient safe

    The simulation questions In the design stage of Windmill 2009, a wide range of individuals were consulted, from frontline managers and clinicians to policy-makers and economists, to establish the focus for the simulation. A number of questions emerged. Will the years of plenty be a sufficient cushion to enable the NHS to make the necessary adjustments without a detrimental effect on patients? How will the various groups and organisations involved in the planning and delivery of health care react to the financial challenge? Will they make decisions that help their own organisa

    Hospital bosses have warned that they face “impossible choices” under Liz Truss’s plan to divert £10 billion a year from the NHS to social care. They say that her pledge to remove cash earmarked for the health service will “slam the brakes” on efforts to tackle record waiting lists, with patients bearing the brunt. An extra £36 billion has been ring-fenced for health and care spending over the next three years, of which less than £2 billion a year is due to go towards social care. Truss, the frontrunner in the Conservative leadership contest, has announced that as prime minister she

    Key points There is unsustainable pressure on health and care services, driven strongly but not exclusively by the severe capacity challenges affecting social care. Like the NHS, the sector faces steep vacancies and is struggling to recruit and retain staff desperately needed to keep people well at home and support them to leave hospital safely. 99 per cent of healthcare leaders responding to our latest survey agreed that there is a social care workforce crisis in their local area. Almost all agreed it is worse than a year ago and expect it to deteriorate into this winter. T
