    Sunday Telegraph uses a £20bn figure divide by 52. Which is the real increase after 5 years

    Real👍

    Mail on Sunday says a completely normal MHS funding package is “extraordinary” and goes for 5 year figure. Note: this would be much larger over 10 why the caution?

    Real👍

    Observer also goes for the 5 year figure? Which it says is “massive”, being less than NHS has received annually since 1948

    Real 👍

    Sunday Times says “biggest cash increase” in NHS history to describe a tad disappointing settlement (for the NHS), but at least has funding costs prominent.

    5 years👎
    Biggest in history🤦‍♀️
    Tax consequences 👍

    THE ONLY RELEVANT FIGURE IS THE ANNUAL PERCENTAGE REAL INCREASE.

    2018-2023. = 3.4%
    1948-2018. = 3.7%
