NHS funding: PM calls for 10-year plan to spend cash

Brexit news Boris Johnson and an NHS hospital

She repeated her claim that part of the increase will be funded by a "Brexit dividend" - a suggestion which has been widely attacked as unrealistic, even by some Conservatives.

Both are considered essential to the sustainability of the NHS, but the increase announced only applied to front-line NHS services such as hospitals, Global Positioning System and mental health care.

"As we leave the European Union and stop paying significant annual subscriptions to Brussels, we will have more money to spend on priorities such as the NHS", May wrote in The Mail on Sunday newspaper.

The NHS is to get an extra £384 million a week after Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May has said.

It is expected that taxes and borrowing will rise to pay for the increase in funding, and resources will be redirected from the more than £9 billion a year the United Kingdom now pays into the EU.

LG Q7 Android One model could be coming exclusively to T
It is a project that is made on the lines of Android One which caters some good devices with frequent new updates and fixes. Except for the OS version, rest of the specifications of the rumoured LG Q7 Android One model should stay the same.

Paul Johnson, Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, told the BBC: "Yes, we'll stop paying money to the European Union, but the economy's already shrunk a bit as a result of the vote - the Government has accepted that".

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell dismissed the announcement as a "publicity stunt".

"There is no Brexit dividend and an NHS funding plan that relies on such a source would be literally worthless".

"We will be able to explain exactly where every penny is coming from but we will do that in the Budget", said the Health Secretary.

But is this "birthday present" enough to save our NHS on its 70th anniversary?

American officials said they would suspend threatened tariff increases on up to $150 billion of Chinese goods. Navarro also disputes any notion that the trade standoff would damage the broader relationship with China.

Chris Hopson, chief executive of NHS Providers, which represents NHS trusts, said the new funding was only the "minimum" that was needed, adding: "After nearly a decade of austerity, the NHS has a lot of catching up to do". We do know - the Treasury has done its sums, it hasn't made its final decisions but it is very clear this can be affordable.

Independent think tank the International Longevity Centre - UK also welcomed the new funding, but stressed that the growing pressures on the health service need to be managed in the long-term "to avoid this becoming a sticking plaster solution".

Mrs May is using her speech in London to say the NHS has a special place in British life, hailing the work of those who treated victims of the Manchester Arena attack past year.

The PM will also recall her own reliance on the NHS for help when she was diagnosed with type one diabetes, saying: "I would not be doing the job I am doing today without that support". But it's right that we must recognise the impact social care has on the NHS, and the way in which these work together.

The Scottish Tories' shadow health secretary, Miles Briggs, called on the SNP to ensure "every penny of the extra cash she receives thanks to this United Kingdom government action goes on health care here in Scotland".
