BWB’s Abbie Rumbold has been quoted in a Lexis Nexis article which examines a report published by HM Treasury arguing that the Government has diverted £1bn earmarked for maintenance and repairs in order to keep day-to-day services running, increasing the risk of “catastrophic” failures in equipment and infrastructure.

In this piece, Abbie states that this turn of events reflects the “paralysis” of the Government, and also puts forward the argument that upfront government investment will result in “long-term savings and happier patients”.

This report also highlights how this is the fourth consecutive year that the Treasury has allowed the Department of Health and Social Care to use funds from capital spending
