NHS Chiefs Threaten to Cut Patient Care Amid Demands to Cover Extra COVID Costs

Last week, Rishi Sunak was accused of “robbing NHS budgets” after he refused to tackle the full cost of treating the 8,021 COVID-19 patients who are currently in UK hospitals.

The bosses of Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) have pledged to start cutting patient care if Chancellor Rishi Sunak fails to allocate £8 billion ($11 billion) for the NHS in order to cover extra COVID-19 costs, The Times reports.

They told the newspaper that Sunak seems to be trying to break his promise to tackle the costs as he looks to pay for the coronavirus pandemic out of normal NHS spending pots.
