Patients face long wait to see benefits from NHS funding boost

New analysis from the King’s Fund suggests that patients face a long wait before they will see improvements in care as a result of the government’s £20 billion NHS funding boost.

The think-tank’s latest quarterly monitoring report draws on analysis of NHS performance data and a survey of NHS trust finance directors to assess the prospects for the NHS as it enters the first year of the new five-year funding deal. It suggests that the NHS is still facing substantial financial pressure despite the additional funding available from April this year.
