UK NHS set on course for "sensible" £1.8bn surplus

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The NHS remains on course for a £1.8bn ($3.57bn) surplus in 2007-08, according to third-quarter figures, published yesterday. The government is trumpeting the "sensible financial management" and successes in meeting key care targets, but the tenor is at odds with evidence of persistent serious shortcomings in certain services and the calls for targeted spending in underinvested areas.
