Question for HM Treasury

11 June 2015

As a result of this Government’s long-term economic plan, the NHS budget increased in real terms over the last Parliament. In this Parliament, the Government will secure the future of the NHS in England by investing in the NHS’s own five-year plan. Decisions on future departmental savings will be taken at the Spending Review later this year.
