Figures buried in Treasury documents have revealed that spending on the NHS has been cut by David Cameron.
NHS real terms spending was cut from £102,751 million under Labour, to £101,985 million in the first year of the Tory-led Government.
John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary said:
“David Cameron has broken his NHS pledge. He put up posters pledging to cut the deficit, not the NHS, but we see now that the Tory-led Government has already cut spending on the NHS in its first year.
“On top of this cut, Cameron’s reckless NHS reorganisation is set to cost £2 billion, money which could be better spent treating patients. And there are more cuts forecast in future years.
“This proves again what people have seen before: that you can’t trust the Tories with the NHS.”
