Responding to the Health Foundation’s report on capital spending in the NHS, Nick Ville, director of policy at the NHS Confederation, said:

“This timely report highlights the worrying fall in capital investment in the NHS – we are spending less on capital than nearly all OECD countries.

“Hospitals badly need more capital spending to be able to offer patients the latest treatments, tackle a maintenance backlog and modernise outdated technology that wastes staff time.

“Failure to tackle this will undermine the ability of the NHS to deliver high-quality patient care. It is essential that this is addressed in the spending review this autumn.”
