The Department of Health said the government wanted to make the NHS the safest healthcare system in the world, according to reports by the BBC
BBC health editor Hugh Pym said “This is an important week for the financing of the health service in England” as the NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits.

“Politicians need to be honest with the public about what the NHS can offer with the funding allocated to it.
“It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public.
“There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of NHS in England today.”
A Department of Health spokesman said the NHS is “performing well and delivering safer, more compassionate care”.
“We know some providers are under financial pressure caused by big rises in demand and our ageing population but are investing an extra £10bn a year by 2020 to deliver the NHS’s own plan for the future.”
“High-quality care and good financial management go hand in hand and we are determined to make NHS the safest healthcare system in the world, delivering a 7-day NHS.”
