Fact Check: Sadiq Khan is wrong about NHS funding

The claim:

Sadiq Khan said regarding NHS funding “These pressures are the result of a decade of underfunding and neglect from government.”


This is misleading. The NHS now has more money than ever before in its history.

At the peak of Labour spending on the NHS, 2009/2010, spending was £124.11 billion.

As of 2023/2024 spending will stand at £173.8 billion, the highest amount spent on the NHS with the exception of the additional COVID spending from 2020-2022.
