“Ahead of Wednesday’s pre-Budget report, the PM said “efficiency savings” would help to save £12bn over four years – £3bn more than planned in the Budget.”
“This culture of excess must change and will change.”
He added that the government would use technological advances to make services more user-friendly and cheaper.
As an example, sending text messages to remind patients about GP appointments could help save up to £600m a year wasted on missed visits.
The technology is there and ready it is just down to the NHS to implement it.
