    The head of the NHS in England, Simon Stevens is set to use controversial claims used by Vote Leave, to put the case for cash boost in a speech later, according to reports by The BBC.

    The speech by Mr Stevens at the NHS Providers’ annual conference of health managers is being made at the time when three reputable health think-thanks- the Health Foundation, the King’s Fund and the Nuffield Trush- publish a joint report calling for the health sector to be given an extra £4bn in 2018.

    This cash boost was also promised during the EU referendum whereby it was claimed that £350m was given to the EU and it would be better spent on the NHS; some have however argued that this proved very significant in the result of the referendum.

    Simon Stevens will say this to delegates in Birmingham:

    “… Rather than our criticising these clear Brexit funding commitments to NHS patients- promises entered into by cabinet ministers and my MPs -the public want to see them honoured…”

    According to a Department of Health spokesman:

    “Research shows spending on the NHS is in line with most other European countries, and the public can be reassured that the government is committed to continued investment in the health service.”

    Chris Hopson, NHS Providers chief executive also supports giving extra money:

    “The Budget is an important opportunity, at the beginning of this Parliament, to protect care quality for patients and service users and help the NHS break out of the downward spiral in which it is currently trapped.”
