The Index Today

The finance ministry of UK has announced to add additional 5.9 billion pounds for health service spending in upcoming years to help reduce waiting lists.

The current 8 billion package which was announced last month was geared towards minimizing backlogs which have increased over the year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. British finance minister Rishi Sunak’s additional budget will help boost elective activity which includes non-emergency procedures such as scans.

The additional sum will entail 2.3 billion pounds allocated for testing facilities and services, 1.5 billion pounds for bed capacity and 2.1 billion pounds to invest in healthcare technology. Rishi Sunak stated, “This is a game-changing investment in the NHS to make sure we have the right buildings, equipment and systems to get patients the help they need and make sure the NHS is fit for the future.”

The budget announcement made by the government also included 5 billion pounds to provide funding for health research and another 3 billion pounds for healthcare education. The minister is expected to apply spending limits of the budget for day-to-day expenses and also help reduce public debt and borrowing.
