NHS cuts too deep

29th July 2011

Official figures from The Treasury have revealed that spending on the NHS fell by more than £700m last year, despite more resources being available to the service.

The new data shows spending was cut from £102,751m in 2009/10 to £101,985m in the year ending in April and suggests the NHS may be making deeper cuts than are necessary to meet the tight spending settlement, with a potential to affect patient care. There are also concerns that Primary Care Trusts were increasingly rationing “non- urgent” operations and patients being denied the chance of choosing where to have their operations.
