Spending NHS money wisely 2

The NHS is facing a challenging time. There is rising local demand for NHS services and the cost and availability of treatments continues to increase, which means it is all the more essential that we spend our limited resources in the most effective way. BHR CCGs need to make £55 million of local savings in the 2017/18 financial year.

From September – November 2017, we ran phase two of the Spending NHS money wisely consultation asking people what they thought about proposals to stop funding or restrict access to a number of treatments, medicines and procedures as we look to make further savings for the local NHS.
