The impact of NHS financial pressures on patient care

The impact of NHS financial pressures on patient care

The King’s Fund is looking at the impact of financial pressures in four service areas, to explore whether financial pressures are being felt differently in different parts of the health system. These are: genito-urinary medicine (GUM) clinics, district nursing, elective hip replacement and neonatal services.

This project aims to explore whether the unprecedented slowdown in NHS funding growth since 2010 has affected patients’ access to high-quality care, and whether financial pressures are felt differently in different parts of the health system.

If you work in one of these service areas or have used the service as a patient, they would like to hear your views on whether financial pressures have had an impact on the quality of patient care.
