The Delivery plan for recovering urgent and emergency care services sets out the NHS’ plan for one of the fastest and longest sustained improvements in emergency waiting times in its history. It is backed by dedicated funding of £1 billion towards 5,000 new beds, 800 new ambulances. It also details £150 million to build 150 new facilities to support mental health in the acute setting, and £1.6 billion of additional social care discharge funding over 23/24 and 24/25. The Treasury has been closely involved in the development of the plan in the usual way.
