The government has put about £13 billion more into the NHS in this parliament

Published: 31st Mar 2015

David Cameron just told the Today Programme that the government has increased spending on the NHS by £12.7 billion.

NHS spending is up by about £13 billion. Spending went up from £100bn in 2010/11 to a planned £113 billion in 2014/15.

If you factor in inflation — as the spending commitment made in the Coalition Agreement did — the rise is £5.5 billion in 2014/15 prices.

These figures apply to NHS England only - spending for Scotland and Wales is devolved.
