5 reasons for the financial crisis on the NHS

A short explantion of how the NHS is running out money

The NHS needs annual rises of about 4% to cope with increases.

Over the last five year its go an average of 0.9%.

The same level of expenditure is planned over the next 5 years.

Economists estimate this will leave the NHS short of around £22bn.

We could bridge this gap by spending the same as other simlar countries like Germany who spend 15% more per head than the UK.

This explains why the UK lags behind in the number of staff and hospital beds that it has too.Instead of raising funding the governemtn are adding to the pressure by demanding huge saving, when services are already overtsetched and not meeting the needs of patients.
