DH urged to re-invest £1.7bn surplus5th March 2009
The Royal College of Nursing has called on the Department of Health to commit the £1.7 billion surplus it is predicting for the NHS to be spent on health and patient care.
RCN chief executive and general secretary Dr Peter Carter said that while the organisation was encouraged that the NHS remained on a firm financial footing, it wanted to see the surplus "swiftly re-invested in frontline services." The RCN feels such a sum could be spent on improving patient care.
