The Spending Review in 2020 provided £260 million to continue to increase the National Health Service workforce and support commitments made in the NHS Long Term Plan. This included £52 million in 2021/22 for Health Education England to further invest in the cancer and diagnostics workforce and expanding the postgraduate medical training of key cancer-related medical professions, such as clinical radiologists and oncologists.

Following the outcome of the recent Spending Review, spending plans for individual budgets for 2022/23 to 2024/25, including for the radiology and oncology workforce, will be subject to a detailed financial planning exercise and finalised in due course.
