26 January 2022
The Executive has committed to transforming the health service through its Elective Care Framework, and to reducing waiting lists by 2026. In support, the Government is providing £445 million for the transformation of public services in Northern Ireland. This is in addition to the £15 billion per year we provide on average for this purpose, which is the largest funding settlement since devolution.
