Healthcare funds distribution unfair, audit finds
Report says some areas are struggling because of an unfair Whitehall system to allocate £79n in resources
Some local healthcare services in England have been underfunded because of an unfair Whitehall system to allocate £79bn in resources, a report by the government's auditors has concluded.
The government is making slow progress towards a proper and accurate distribution of money to local commissioners of healthcare, the National Audit Office said. Many decisions are being made on individual civil servants' judgments instead of being based on evidence, the report found. Guardian
