The Public Accounts Committee has launched an inquiry on NHS Backlogs and Waiting Times.
The Committee will question the senior officials at DHSC and NHS England on the current position of NHS backlogs and waiting times following the COVID-19 pandemic, including the points at which patients wait for NHS treatment; how trends in waiting times changed before the emergence of COVID-19; and the effect that COVID-19 has had on waiting times.
We will be submitting a BPS response and would appreciate members help with this.
If you would like to contribute, please send any comments and supporting evidence references.
This can be completed on a word document or in the body of an email.
As this is an inquiry by the Public Accounts Committee, any information around costs of backlogs & waiting times, would be welcomed in addition to any broader, evidence-based points.
Please send these to [email protected] by midday on Monday 29 November.
