Prof John Appleby
A real increase of 110%
From £44 billion…
From £1 in 20 in the entire economy spent on the NHS…
…political decision to spend more…
…but growth slows (it will feel like a cut)…
…but now catching up…
Historically, UK has lagged behind EU-15 countries…
Inflation absorbed £18+billion….
…leaving around 56% of the cash increase to buy extra things
Pay inflation: up 80% in ten years….
Large pay awards for doctors in particular as a result of new contracts ….
A quarter of a million new NHS staff over ten years….
But last few years have seen minimal increases as NHS deals with deficits and plans for a tighter financial future
Waiting list now at its lowest since 1974….
…and waiting times reduced massively: virtually no one waiting more then 6 months….
11% increase in elective admissions….
Net satisfaction with NHS overall highest it has been since 1980s….(shame about NHS dentistry…)
