NHS Recovery plan. A Year On Are we Recovering?


The All-Party Parliamentary Health Group is delighted to host an upcoming panel event in parliament on the NHS recovery plan. A year on Are we recovering?

One year ago, the NHS England published its plan to tackle the backlog of elective care, which had surged following the onset of the pandemic. Since then, waiting lists for NHS treatment in England have continued to grow, increasing by around 1 million between February and November 2022 to almost 7.2 million incomplete treatment pathways.

Chaired by Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP, Shadow Minister for Mental Health, this event will review how far the NHS has come since the announcement of this plan? This event will consider a few questions, including if we are still on target to meet the ambitions of the Long-Term plan? Explore the solutions for elective recovery and how can we better use the resources to address delays on treatments such a cancer treatment. Will this also be supported by an upcoming workforce plan?

Speakers include:

  • Sir Jim Mackey- National Director of Elective Recovery
  • Professor Alison Leary - Chair of Healthcare & Workforce Modelling LSBU
  • Debra Padgett- President, Institute of Biomedical science (IBMS)
  • Professor Philip Banfield - Council Chair, British Medical Association (BMA)
  • Urte Macikene- Policy and External Affairs Manager, Healthwatch
  • Professor Scarlett McNally- Deputy Director, Centre for Perioperative Care
