Prime minister sets out five-year NHS funding plan

The prime minister, Theresa May, has set out plans for a five-year funding settlement for the NHS, which will receive an increase of £20.5bn a year by the end of the period – an average 3.4% per year overall.

The increase is intended to help the NHS recover lost ground and set the foundations for service improvements. It will be front-loaded with increases of 3.6% in the first two years, which means £4.1 billion extra next year.
