The funding announced in the Autumn Statement is a down-payment on the NHS's own long-term plan, fully delivering the investment required to make the Five Year Forward View a reality in 2015-16.

It also provides funding to start delivering the changes necessary to ensure a sustainable NHS in future years.

This has only been possible through good financial management of the Government’s budget, and through the success of the Government’s long term economic plan.
