Performance tracker: autumn 2017

Performance tracker: autumn 2017 This report finds that the government has spent over £10 billion in five years just to keep troubled services - such as hospitals and prisons - going and argues that the extra funding is not solving underlying issues that public services are facing. In the analysis of health and social care services, it finds that hospitals are spending more with no sign of improvement in key pressure points; adult social care is lacking a clear plan for what happens once emergency funding has run out; and GP numbers are not rising despite plans to improve services. The report calls for urgent action on policy and decision making in order to deal with the building pressures on public services. Institute for Government
