Theresa May on NHS Funding

The Guardian has reported that Theresa May has said the NHS will get no extra funding.

In her first meeting with Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England, the Prime Minister is reported to have suggested the NHS should focus on making efficiencies to fill the £22bn hole in its finances before it receives more money.

Senior Whitehall sources have confirmed to the Guardian that the Chancellor’s statement on 23rd November will contain no new money for the NHS, despite increasingly vocal pleas from key NHS organisations and the public’s expectation of extra health spending if Britain voted to leave the EU.
