We are going to fund, in full, the Five Year Forward View that the NHS itself put forward as the plan for its future with the first £6 billion delivered up-front next year.
This means the NHS will have received £10 billion in real terms by the end of this Parliament.
Paul Scully, the Conservative MP for Sutton, Cheam and Worcester Park, said, "This is great news for the NHS. The NHS came to the government with a plan for the future and we are delivering the money it needs to meet those goals. We are the only major party that made the manifesto committment to providing the money the NHS needed, and we are delivering on that promise.
"Locally, A&E and Maternity Units are safe at St Helier over the next 5 years and the Chief Executive of Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust will soon be announcing his estates plan for the future of the hospitals he manages. I regularly volunteer at St Helier Hospital and will keep fighting for world class health provisions in Sutton."
