Worst health cuts for Wales

25th May 2011

A review of health spending has revealed that Wales is facing the worst NHS cuts in the UK.

Analysis by Professor John Appleby of the King's Fund think tank suggests the Welsh NHS budget will fall by nearly 11% in the next three years, once inflation was taken into account. Northern Ireland faces a 2.2% cut over four years while England faces a cut of 0.9%. Figures for Scotland were less clear in the long-term as the budget has only been set for this year, when there will be a 3.3% cut.
