Question for Department of Health

UIN 902116, tabled on 10 November 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what additional financial support he plans to make available to the NHS to deal with pressure on services in winter 2015-16.

£400 million in resilience money has been invested in the National Health Service for this winter. Learning from previous years, we have put this money into the NHS baseline for 2015/16 so that the NHS can plan effectively at an earlier stage.


There will be no further additional money for the NHS ahead of winter.
