our NHS

We are putting health and social care on a sustainable financial footing so that our NHS is there for future generations. We are also reforming the NHS to make it less bureaucratic, more accountable, and more integrated while boosting funding. And we are tackling the backlog from the pandemic.

Reforming health and social care

Reducing bureaucracy, helping to plan health and care services around patients’ needs, and making NHS England more accountable to taxpayers


We believe the best way to level up and deliver social progress is to give every child a world-class education. Consequently, we are delivering the biggest boost to school funding in a decade, setting up hundreds of free schools, and ensuring pupils with Special Educational Needs are not left out.

Education funding boosted by an additional £14.4 billion over three years

The biggest school funding increase in years means every primary school will receive at least £4,405 per pupil, and every secondary school at least £5,715 per pupil, an uplift of over £1,500

We are delivering £4 billion in additional funding for schools over the next two years to help schools with rising costs as a result of inflation
