Billions of Pounds Squandered on NHS

In addition it says, "Improvements have in no way increased in proportion to the vast sums ploughed in".

This year's expenditure by the NHS has gone up from Ģ45billion in 2000 to Ģ76billion this year.

The report claims that UK is the only developed nation not to improve stroke care between 1999 and 2003 in spite of being 24th out of 27 countries for the number of doctors per 1,000 of the population.

Shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said: "This is a damning summary of mismanagement."

However the Department of Health has defended the expenditure saying that NHS patients were receiving better care across the board.
