Boris Johnson is set to announce a £1.8bn cash boost for frontline NHS services. 
The prime minister will make the pledge during a visit to a hospital on Monday. He is expected to say that the money will go towards increasing the number of hospital beds, funding new equipment, upgrading wards and repairing damaged buildings.
The government said the cash injection would fund upgrades to 20 hospitals around the country, with the details to be announced by Mr Johnson.

A government source said: “The prime minister has been clear since day one that the NHS is a top priority.

Doesn't make up for the £22.5 billion in cuts since 2014

Just for clarification, is the anything that Johnson could do that would meet with your approval? I'm not his biggest fan by any means but it seems a little churlish when he has given the NHS a much needed boost.

He promised £350 million a week by writing it on the side of a red bus, that’s £18.2 Billion a year, where’s the rest?

So it turns out this is not even new money, but money that was already in the nhs but had a spending block on it. Alexander Boris De Pfeffel Johnson is a liar, nothing changes there.

How is this an extra £1.8 billion?


The government has always promised it would be increasing capital funding in 2019-20.
Last year's Budget said spending would rise from £5.9bn in 2018-19 to £6.7bn in the new financial year.
But that was subsequently reduced. By the time Boris Johnson became prime minister, the plan was to spend £5.9bn again. After Monday's announcement that now increases to £7bn.
