Rishi Sunak – 2022 Comments on the Health and Social Care Levy

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 6 April 2022.

This Government will not shy away from the difficult decisions we need to take to fix our social care system and slash NHS waiting times. The Health and Social Care Levy will fund a third more elective care, over 17 million extra diagnostic tests and a cap on the cost of care so people no longer live in fear of losing everything to pay for care.

The British people deserve the best health care in the world and delivering that is our top priority.
