Spending on frontline services rose by £3.4bn in 2011/12

The NHS has saved £1.5 billion since last year by cutting the number of managers, and reducing expenditure on wasteful IT projects.

Spending on frontline NHS services has increased by £3.4 billion (or 3.5%) in cash terms compared to last year. This means more money for running hospitals, hiring doctors, and treating patients.
