Fraction of £2.5bn has actually been released to NHS

Exclusive: Capital billions promised by ministers fail to reach ‘front line’

Only a fraction of the £2.5bn of capital funding announced and allocated by the government for the NHS since 2017 has actually been released to the service.

Research by HSJ suggests less than £100m has been distributed to local providers over the last two years – equating to just 3 per cent of the total funding listed in several headline-grabbing media announcements.

In this day + age we need people queuing to string these moronic ‘politicians’ up; it’s all they deserve. They need to be prosecuted for mismanagement and incompetence and not allowed to be in positions for power.
