The expected services and capabilities of the NHS have continued to rise year on year. Unprecedented strain has been put on the already overstretched sector by the Covid-19 pandemic. The elective care backlog is at an all-time high and staff have faced severe pressures.

Rigorous financial planning to maximise efficacy gains will play a key part in helping the NHS recover from the pandemic.

• The number of Trusts reporting a deficit halved between 2018-2020
• Planned spending for the Department of Health and Social Care in England was £212.1 billion in 2020/21, up from £150.4 billion in 2019/20
• Over £20 billion of extra Covid-19-related funding has been allocated to the DHSC for 2021/22
