In the years before Cameron’s Health and Social Care Act, the National Health Service (NHS) ran a combined £10 billion surplus. Now it faces bankruptcy.
In the 6 years before the Tory Health and Social Care Act became law the NHS ran a budget surplus of a combined total of more than £10 billion. This is shown in the table above and can be confirmed on page 9 of the report document – please see here. Of that £10 billion surplus, more than £2 billion of the surplus came from NHS Trusts in the years preceding 2012.
