Spending on NHS to rise22nd March 2007
The NHS is set to get £8bn additional funding this year, Chancellor Gordon Brown announced.
Mr Brown said the NHS was in line for the ‘biggest cash increase ever’ representing a 10% rise, or 7% in real terms. He added the NHS would profit from the 3% annual efficiency savings, which would release an extra £26bn for public services over the next three years.
But his budget has been harshly criticised, with Conservative leader David Cameron saying the failure to address the NHS was the ‘hole in the heart of the Budget’.
