Can the NHS improve quality and save money?

24th April 2012

Health Minister Simon Burns has written a blog post in order to explain how giving patients better care will mean the NHS spends less money.

He wrote: "People have voiced concerns that the NHS’s efficiency drive will in some areas reduce the quality of care. I understand those concerns. The NHS’s funding is of course, protected. But because demand is increasing, it is in the middle of a major mission to find up to £20 billion of efficiency savings that it will then put back into frontline care. Back into frontline care, note – not back into Treasury coffers."
