Report slams ‘inadequate’ NHS capital spending

Its briefing warns that an ageing infrastructure, together with a substantial and growing repairs backlog, is likely to undermine ambitions to transform the health service, including plans to improve cancer survival and make the NHS a world leader in technology-driven care.
