Health reforms risen to £1.6bn

22nd October 2012

The cost of implementing the Health and Social Care Act has risen further to £1.6bn, according to new government figures.

The rise has angered healthcare unions including the Royal College of Nursing which branded the reforms a “waste of money” with chief executive Peter Carter concerned there would be further rises. The figure was revealed by health secretary Jeremy Hunt in a written statement to the House of Commons, where he admitted the costs of implementing the Health and Social Care Act have risen by around £300m.
