Abstract

The extra funding promised for the NHS has been provided; total public spending on the NHS in England has increased from £44.9bn in the first year of the NHS Plan (2000-01) to £76.4bn five years later (2005-06). At a significant juncture half-way through the NHS Plan (DH, 2000) and towards the end of the most significant increases in funding, this report seeks an answer to the pertinent question: is the extra money working?
