Pledge to cut NHS costs

25th March 2010

The NHS is set to face cuts of £4.35bn over the next three years in an efficiency savings drive, says the Department of Health.

It sees the NHS making the biggest contribution to £11bn of government savings announced in last year's pre-Budget report. In comparison, the Ministry of Defence will cut costs by £700m, education by £1.1bn and work and pensions by £500m. Key parts of the plan will be to move civil servants out of London, reducing staff sickness and use of consultants.
