UK health service facing financial deficit:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Finance officers at the UK National Health Service (NHS) are predicting a £250 million ($400 million) deficit by the end of the year and warn that the figure could be even higher next year. Health Secretary Alan Milburn says there is no great cause for concern, however, as a £250 million deficit is less than 1% of the NHS budget. But senior managers tell a different story and claim this is the worst financial situation in memory. The British Medical Association has called for a fundamental review of the NHS's financing, including looking at the possibility of additional sources of private funds.
