Surplus should be put back into NHS

25th March 2011

Government figures show that the NHS is on course to have a £1.4 billion surplus by the end of the financial year.

However, the BMA, wants assurances that the money will go straight back into patient care at a time when the government is asking the NHS to make £20 billion of efficiency savings by 2015. Department of Health findings for October-December 2010 also revealed continuing reduction in the rates of hospital acquired infections; better performance on quickly seeing and treating patients who have mini-strokes; increased access to dentistry for adults; and improvement in breast and bowel cancer screening rates.
