NHS performance data 'likely to be delayed until after election'

NHS performance data 'likely to be delayed until after election' The publication of key financial performance data from the NHS in England will be delayed until after the election, the BBC understands.

Regulator NHS Improvement had wanted to publish data on the scale of hospital deficits but was advised against it by the government.

NHS Improvement said it was "disappointing" the results could not be published until after the election.

The Department of Health and the Conservative Party did not comment.

In a statement, NHS Improvement said a date for the publication of the figures had to be agreed with the Department of Health, but this had not been done when the election for 8 June was called. BBC News
