Chancellor to announce £2bn extra for NHS


Chancellor George Osborne is to announce a £2 billion boost for the NHS this week, according to media reports Sunday.

The announcement is set to come during Wednesday’s Autumn Statement — a keynote event outlining the government’s latest tax and spending plans.

Osborne is set to say that the government can afford the extra spending due to economic growth.

The NHS is expected to be one of the key battlegrounds between the Conservatives and Labour at next year’s general election.
