'We have faced year on year cuts.
More recently, health secretary and, er, app minister Matt Hancock has been trotting out his "tech vision" for the NHS at every opportunity, while the PM has hitched various announcements to the AI bandwagon.

Mr Speaker, ultimately staff are the heart of the NHS - the people who work in the NHS. A broad spectrum of digital services will support individuals to take a much more proactive and responsible approach to monitoring their own health and well-being, enabling them to recognise their individual health risks and symptoms as early as possible, and manage their personal response to these risks. We're also constrained by severe workforce shortages.
This is imperative for effective future planning given the ageing population and the fact that doctors are treating patients with more complex needs, though we await further detail on how this will be delivered'.

The NHS will tackle unacceptable health inequalities by targeting support towards the most vulnerable in areas of high deprivation.
"If we are to tackle the current crisis facing our mental health, this increased investment in services needs to be matched by a commitment to the prevention of mental health problems".
GP and community care will receive £4.5bn extra of the £20.5bn boost, while mental health services will receive £2.3bn extra.
And we will expand services for young people to include people up to the age of 25.
