Concern over £1.7bn set aside for 'non-recurrent' NHS spending

14th May 2010

Concerns have been raised that the new government may claw back the £1.7bn set aside for “non-recurrent” spending within the NHS.

The government has confirmed plans outlined by the Conservatives before the election to cut £6bn from “non-frontline services” this financial year and a comprehensive spending review to set out spending for the next two years due to report in the autumn. However, HSJ reports that NHS finance sources fear the government will “claw back” the 2% of primary care trust allocations set aside for “non-recurrent” spending this financial year.
