British PM promises Brexit health service boost

Theresa May

Speaking about May's announcement, the foundation's director of research and economics Professor Anita Charlesworth said: "A funding increase of £20.5 billion per year to NHS England's budget by 2023/24 is around 3.4%".

The PM will say that money that no longer needs to be paid to the European Union after Brexit will help fund the increase by 2023-24, and the country will also be asked to contribute more for the NHS.

Also, the government has been pressured to honour the notorious pledge plastered on buses during the European Union referendum campaign, which claimed that Brexit would make £350 million a week available to the NHS.

But that figure, famously advertised on the side of the pro-Brexit campaign bus back in 2016, ignored the money that Britain gets back from the EU.

It's the end of the "sticking plaster" approach to health funding, promised Theresa May today.

When questioned on the Andrew Marr Show on Sunday about what she would be "bringing to the party" ahead of the NHS's 70 birthday on 5 July, Theresa May confirmed the NHS will receive an extra £20bn a year.

The concept of a "Brexit dividend" has been widely criticised, with health and social care select committee chair and former GP Sarah Wollaston calling it "tosh". Critics say taxes and borrowing will have to rise in order to deliver the pledge, but no detail on how it will be paid for is expected before November's budget.

North Korea shouldn't have nukes - and neither should we
It was made by the Choson Sinbo, a pro-Pyongyang mouthpiece in Japan that normally faithfully reproduces the party line. Both Lamborn and Gardner, though, also expressed the need to keep the pressure on North Korea moving forward.

Scottish Labour's health spokesman Anas Sarwar said: "This is an uncosted announcement with a "Brexit dividend" promise plucked straight from the magic money tree, and even then it falls short of what the health service needs to stand still".

But she has been roundly castigated for continuing to say that money would partly come from a "Brexit dividend".

In addition to this she also announced that an extra £1.25 billion a year will be set aside for "a specific pensions pressure" in the NHS.

Beyond the "Brexit dividend", May has not explained where most of the money will come from other than suggesting that "taxpayers will have to contribute a bit more". Without tax increases, Hammond would nearly certainly be forced to abandon his plans to erase the budget deficit by the middle of the next decade.

Dr Gerada told HuffPost that May had "attempted to appease" Brexiteers by "talking about a fictitious source of funds", adding: "There is no Brexit dividend and it is disappointing that what should be good news, namely additional NHS funding, has been clouded by citing a non-existent funding source". This is unsustainable and we call on the Prime Minister to specifically address this in the detail of her plans, ' she said.

Two thirds of voters said they would be willing to pay one penny more in the pound in income tax to help the NHS, according to a YouGov survey.

Across the whole Department of Health (including other areas like public health) the Nuffield Trust has calculated that the increase will amount to around 3% a year, rather than 3.4%.
