I am sure that you are aware of the Government’s plans to integrate health and social care and promote the NHS as being world leading. The spending review (HM Treasury, 2015) stated there would be £120 billion annual investment by 2020/21 to protect the NHS, providing the NHS in England with a £10 billion per annum more in real terms by 2020–2021 than in 2014–2015. There would be £6 billion a year available by the first year, to allow the Five Year Forward View (2014) to be fully funded to deliver services 7 days a week.

As a part of these changes, there will also be changes to funding of pre-registration nursing and healthcare courses.
