Increase in NHS funding
The Faculty is pleased to hear about government plans for a real increase in NHS funding in England over the coming five years.
"We have been working over the last year with key healthcare stakeholders, including the DHSC and NHS England, to raise the profile of critical care services in advance of any potential NHS70 funding increase. We have found these meetings to be very positive and receptive and we therefore hope the needs of critical care will continue to be considered."
Dr Carl Waldmann, Dean of FICM
The Faculty looks forward to the detail of the budgeting plan (due in the Autumn), including how it will be funded and sustained and which areas the funding will cover.
