Budget 2021: NHS in England to receive £5.9bn to reduce backlog

BBC News says the NHS in England is to receive an extra £5.9bn in this week’s Budget, the government has announced.

The money will be used to help clear the record backlog of people waiting for tests and scans, which has been worsened by the pandemic, and also to buy equipment and improve IT.

More details are due on Wednesday, but Chancellor Rishi Sunak called the money “game-changing”.

Health bodies welcomed the cash, but said staff shortages need to be fixed.
