The 64 billion question where did the money go
The £64 billion question:Where did the money go?


Higher costs
…higher costs

Inflation absorbed £18+billion….

…leaving around 56% of the cash increase to buy extra things

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


Shorter waiting times

Waiting list now at its lowest since 1974….

…and waiting times reduced massively: virtually no one waiting more then 6 months….


More patients

  • Virtually all NHS Plan ‘shopping list’ targets met:

    • 100 new hospitals

    • Modernising 3,000 GP premises

    • 75% of all MRI/CT scanners and linear accelerators now new…

    • But, problems with ICT investment

    • …backlog maintenance…single rooms…


Value for money
