The Conservatives have announced today an investment of up to £100million for Cambridge Children’s Hospital which will deliver a Children’s Hospital in our County together with University research in one site.
This is part of £1bn extra capital funding being announced across England. It comes on top of the £20.5bn per year extra funding for the NHS over the next five years – the longest and largest funding settlement in the NHS’s history. The investment is part of the wider plan to provide better services for patients, integrate care better and renew aging facilitates.
The increased funding and the Long Term Plan demonstrates our abiding commitment to the NHS so the NHS can be there for all of us, free at the point of use, long into the future.
