Theresa May’s NHS spending boast coming from some fictitious Brexit windfall.This talk of a Brexit dividend,is similar to £350 million pledge made by BorisJohnson during EU referendum,is coming dangerously close 2 Ms May’s own version of a magic money tree.

“The lack of funding for public health is a growing problem which the government simply can’t continue to ignore. Unless we invest in public health we're storing up long-term problems" - | NHS funding increase is the bare minimum warns Unite

Thanks for your analysis. But why is everyone playing into Gvoernment’s tricks and only using the NHSE budget when we know all the comparisons with the past and predictions of need for growth are based on total DH budget? So the rise is only 3%.

In case talk of Brexit dividend comes up in discussion of NHS funding thought I’d retweet excellent piece explaining in his wonderfully clear way why there is NO Brexit dividend. NHS needs extra funds but it’s taxes not Brexit that will have to pay for it

New piece on the NHS Brexit dividend. It does not exist. In fact we would need to spend £1bn a year more just to compensate NHS staff for the higher prices already seen since the referendum.

Er He really doesn't 1. His "uplift" isn't an uplift 2. His long term plan of more privatisation is against the wishes of the general population So we really *really* don't think hunt deserves any credit at all

DO NOT ignore that Theresa May has misinformed the public about 3 impt things: 1/ Austerity continues. You’ll be paying more tax for your NHS. 2/ the Conservatives do not care for the NHS 3/ Conservatives are terrified they will lose in next election

Speaking on this morning - this comes against a background of flatline investment over the last 8 years. This is just catch up money, and it’s not even enough to catch up.

So the Tories are increasing funding after 8 years of disastrous (unnecessary) austerity that left patients dying in hptl corridors and staff in tears and end of shifts. This increase (by 2023/24!!) is a sticking plaster and only helps in a small way. Here’s why I say this..

A healthcare system that is (predominantly) publicly funded, provided, & don’t forget, publicly accountable, is not only morally & ethically right, but has evidence of better patient outcomes, cost-efficiency & effectiveness to clinch the case

Unfortunately this will not even make up for years of neglect and underfunding. A sticking plaster on an abscess is better than nothing but is not adequate treatment.

No increased funding was announced when ambulances were queuing outside hospitals No funding when people were lying in hospital corridors No money when patients were dying waiting to get to hospital And now only 3.4% Way below what was asked Far too little Far too late

If the Tories had delivered a 3.4% annual spending increase when they came to power in 2010, it would have made a big difference. Now, it will barely make up for the 8 years of austerity, which has crippled the NHS & social care, and undermined public health in general
