NHS FUNDING CHANGES WILL HIT THE DEPRIVED NORTH

SALFORD GAINS 1.9% HAMPSHIRE GAINS ALMOST 14%!

The ConDem Government is proposing a new funding formula for the NHS which, health experts claim, "could widen the North-South health divide by reducing NHS services in the North".

The Government is aiming to take out the current `deprivation' weighting and give more emphasis to age, which benefits wealthier areas. Salford gets a 1.9% increase, while South Eastern Hampshire is set for an increase in funding of almost 14%. Manchester is the biggest loser with some areas getting cuts of up to 8% of current funding.
