NHS to face tough audit for extra billions

The National Health Service will face a tough new auditing regime as a pay-off for the extra billions of pounds of taxpayers money it is to receive.

According to reports, a new value-for-money inspection system is expected to be announced in the Budget next week as part of a package to reassure the public that higher spending on the NHS will deliver results.

But the move could lead to a battle within Whitehall as the Audit Commission, responsible for current value-for-money studies in the health service, could be replaced by a new ‘super regulator’.

The commission is understood to be planning an expansion of its own work within the NHS but could lose out to the Commission for Health Improvement.
