£13bn shortfall for NHS in five years

11th December 2008

The executive chair of foundation trust regulator Monitor, Bill Moyes, has warned that there could be a £13bn gap between what the NHS has been assessed as needing and what it will get by 2013.

Speaking at the Healthcare Financial Management Association conference, Mr Moyes compared the 1.1% funding growth expected from 2011 onwards with the required growth rates set out by Sir Derek Wanless in his 2002 review of healthcare finance for Gordon Brown, who was then chancellor and found a gap equating to £13bn.
