Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson today led the questioning at the Public Accounts Committee’s hearing on the sustainability and financial performance of acute hospital trusts.

The Public Accounts Committee is one of the most influential Parliamentary committees with its main role being to scrutinise the value for money – the economy, efficiency and effectiveness – of public spending and it generally holds the government and its civil servants to account for the delivery of public services.

At the inquiry, Mr Jackson, along with other committee members questioned senior management at Yeovil District Hospital, as well as the Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health and the Chief Executive of NHS England.

Stewart Jackson said:

“This was a very useful hearing and I am sure that many will find the PAC report, when published, to be an interesting read.  I also welcomed the opportunity to challenge Simon Stevens of NHS England regarding the Uniting Care Partnership in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Their inquiry will report in 6-8 weeks.”
