Northern Ireland provision reviewed

    The King’s Fund has started a six-month review of health and social
    care in Northern Ireland.

    The inquiry, which will be led by chief economist Professor John
    Appleby, will look at demand for services, resources and the
    relationship between health and social care.

    It will be similar to Derek Wanless’s 2003 inquiry into Welsh
    health and social care, and comes amid calls for a fundamental
    review of social services funding in England, along the lines of
    Wanless’s 2002 report on the NHS.
