Medicine is constantly advancing and so the NHS could always find ways to spend more money but what we should be more concerned about is whether that money is being put to good use.

If savings can be made simply by better and more efficient practices, that seems to make the most sense to me. By increasing the standard of care offered, the cost of legal claims would also be reduced.

I agree that the burden of providing more funding should not be put on the tax player until the NHS can show that it is using the funding it already has in the wisest possible way.
