The Government has responded to the financial challenges faced by the National Health Service by providing significant increases in funding. A five-year settlement will see Resource Departmental Expenditure Limit (DEL) funding increase by £33.9 billion per year by 2023-24 that will support the NHS Long Term Plan. In addition new Capital DEL funding is being provided, totalling £4.8 billion, that will support new capital programmes across the NHS, including the Health Infrastructure Plan announced in October 2019.
Key commitments included in the NHS Long Term Plan include: a return to financial sustainability for all organisations and for all systems to become Integrated Care Systems, which will bring together organisations to redesign care, reduce inequalities, deliver financial sustainability and most importantly improve population health.
