Sunday Telegraph uses a £20bn figure divide by 52. Which is the real increase after 5 years
5 year cumulaton 👎
Locking into Brexit 🤦♀️
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?
Observer also goes for the 5 year figure? Which it says is “massive”, being less than NHS has received annually since 1948
5 years 👎

BBC goes 5 years too (but scroll a long way down and you get an annual 3.4% figure)

THE ONLY RELEVANT FIGURE IS THE ANNUAL PERCENTAGE REAL INCREASE.
2018-2023. = 3.4%
1948-2018. = 3.7%
