The funding announced at the Spending Review will increase the capacity and efficiency of diagnostic services overall. While some of these services can be used to diagnose liver disease, there will not be a specific allocation for liver disease. Services and equipment used to diagnose liver disease will also be used to diagnose a range of conditions.
