Areas of questioning

The Committee's questioning is expected to focus on the impact of the Budget on areas of health spending not covered by the announcement of funding for the NHS over the next five years, made earlier this year (on which the Committee took evidence on 2 July). The Committee is also expected to consider the impact on the NHS of funding for those non-NHS services. Other areas expected to be covered include NHS capital expenditure and PFI, mental health spending, workforce spending, and the scope for improving productivity and efficiency as required by the Government's "financial tests" for the NHS.

Further sessions are expected to be held following publication of the NHS 10-year plan.

The Committee is not seeking written submissions ahead of this session.
