NHS England facing £2bn funding gap

The NHS in England will face a funding gap of up to £2bn for the next financial year, according to the BBC.

Senior health sources have said that from April 2015, growing costs will outstrip the money the NHS received.

The NHS's budget in England for 2015 has been set at about £100bn.

"The NHS is on track to make £20bn savings this parliament and we are confident that it will continue to make the savings necessary to meet rising demand,” The Department of Health said in a statement.
As part of the government's plan to reduce the UK deficit, the NHS has experienced a prolonged budget freeze.
The concerns come following the recent research by the Nuffield Trust suggesting that the NHS in Wales was facing a £2.5bn funding gap over the next decade.
