NHS needs £2,000…from every household to stay afloat (IFS)1 min read

NHS needs £2,000 in tax from every household to stay afloat, report concludes.

The finding comes amid evidence of huge strain on the service and a recent promise by Theresa May to bring forward a longer-term funding regime for the NHS.

There has also been growing speculation that Chancellor Philip Hammond is planning to announce a hike in taxes specifically to increase resources for the health service, perhaps along the lines of Gordon Brown’s National Insurance hike in 2002.
