Edward Argar – 2020 Comments on NHS Funding

Comments made by Edward Argar, the Health Minister, on 11 August 2020.

Our NHS did an amazing job to ensure emergency care continued to be available for everyone who needed it during the peak of this pandemic.

Today, we are announcing the details of the Trusts across the country who will receive a share of £300 million to upgrade their A&Es and support emergency care to help them to continue to deliver safe and accessible services throughout the normally busy winter period.

This funding is part of our record investment in NHS infrastructure to ensure our health services continue to meet the needs of the present and to be fit for future demands placed upon it.
