The Prime Minister has announced a £1.8 billion cash injection for the NHS to ensure frontline services have the funding they need – delivering on his pledge on the steps of Downing Street. This includes a £850 million package for 20 hospitals to upgrade outdated facilities and equipment, helping to improve patient care and save more lives.
This is in addition to the new funding announced last year, where the Conservative Government pledged an extra £33.9 billion cash to the NHS by 2023-24 – the biggest cash injection in its history.
London Assembly Member, Gareth Bacon, said “The NHS has been there for us whenever we need it for 71 years, and this new funding will make a real difference to the lives of NHS doctors, nurses, and above all, of patients. The Conservatives are committed to making sure frontline services have the funding they need – meaning more beds, new wards, and extra life-saving equipment to ensure patients continue to receive world-class care.”
