GP sustainability plans are 'undeliverable', MPs warned


If anyone caught PMQ's yesterday the subject of NHS funding came up. The government asked the NHS how much money they needed and they the government gave them more than they asked for. The trouble is now the people who said we need £8bn are realising very quickly they were very very wrong. Rather than admit that and go back to government, fall on their sword and get the NHS funded they are asking providers to make their number right. Beware that on the days of reckoning approaching 2020 will it be those who signed off the 5YFV asking for £8bn who will be blamed for the mess or will it be providers who are failing to deliver on the needed savings?
