To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what additional financial support he is making available to the NHS to help it deal with winter pressures.
Answered by: Mr Jeremy Hunt
Answered on: 13 October 2015

£400 million in resilience money has been invested in the National Health Service for winter 2015-16. Learning from previous years, we have put this money into the NHS baseline for 2015-16 so that the NHS can plan effectively at local level for the long-term and take earlier action to tackle the symptoms of seasonal pressures.

There will be no further additional money for the NHS ahead of winter.
