The Prime Minister has announced a five-year funding agreement which will see the National Health Service budget grow by £20 billion, in real terms, by 2023-24. The 2018-19 baseline for this funding agreement has been uplifted by £800 million to take account of additional funding that the Government will provide to the NHS in the current financial year to cover Agenda for Change pay deal costs – as previously announced. The additional funding to cover Agenda for Change pay deal costs in 2019-20 and 2020-21 is included within the planned additions to resource budgets for NHS England in 2019-20 and 2020-21.
