More evidence the public willing to pay more for NHS welcomed by NHS Confederation

Niall Dickson

Responding to research on the popularity of paying 1p more on income tax, Niall Dickson, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, which represents organisations across the healthcare sector, said:

“This is more evidence that the public accepts the need to fund healthcare and is willing to pay more for improved services.

“How that money is raised is a matter for government and taxpayers, but we certainly would support any fair and transparent way of securing the required additional funds.

“Based on the IFS/Health Foundation study we commissioned - we need 4 per cent real terms growth for both health and social care every year for the next 15 years.

“And to be clear, we accept that any additional money must be accompanied by new ways of working and targeted investment. Government is right to expect a relentless drive for efficiency and improvement.”
