Inquiry

MPs will scrutinize Sajid Javid, the Health and Social Care Secretary, on his plans to deal with the multiple crises facing the sector in this one-off session. The session is expected to cover the Government’s workforce strategy, including provisions set out in the Health and Care Bill. Staff pay, employee burnout, and integrating social care and NHS workforce planning are on the agenda.  

The Committee is also expected to question the Secretary of State on plans for the next stage of the Covid pandemic and the impact of mandatory vaccinations for healthcare workers. Spending, budget, and plans to recover elective care may also be discussed. A selection of questions crowdsourced from the public will be put to Sajid Javid.
