On 7 September 2021, the Prime Minister announced a new plan for health and care, with an additional £36bn to be spent over the next three years. Build back better: our plan for health and social care (the plan) set out intentions for healthcare and adult social care, supported by a new health and social care levy to raise the necessary funds through taxation.

The plan will be supplemented by a white paper due later in 2021, setting out proposals for system reform of adult social care. A national plan will also be developed to support and enable further integration between health and social care.

This briefing sets out the key points announced by the Prime Minister. Build back better: our plan for health and social care should be referred to for the further details that are available at this stage.
