The demand pressures that our National Health Service faces this winter has been in the news recently, but it has been spun by those with a political agenda that NHS funding has been cut. This is simply untrue. The only part of the UK that has seen reductions in health spending is Wales, where the devolved Welsh Assembly (controlled by Labour) runs the NHS. The financial facts speak for themselves. Every year, NHS funding is greater than the year before. The government has committed to increase funding for the NHS by an extra £10billion a year by 2020, of which £6billion will have been delivered by the end of 2016-17.
