Spending Round - PwC comments on extra NHS funding

Sep 04, 2019

Commenting on the additional healthcare funding announced by the Chancellor, David Morris, public sector health leader at PwC, said: 

“Additional cash for healthcare is undoubtedly welcome but with the NHS nationally facing a £4-5 billion deficit and more than 200 individual trusts overspent, this award and, indeed, money alone will not solve the crisis. As the population continues to age and demand continues to rise, it is vital that the health and social care system accelerates the pace of change to ensure improved outcomes, that available resources are optimised, and patients are empowered.”
