Britain's May pledges 20 billion extra pounds for healthcare post-Brexit
Updated : June 17, 2018 03:47 PM IST
May said the spending increase was equivalent to a 3.4 percent funding increase in real terms. Independent experts say it needs even more than that to improve.
Sunday's announcement was also tailored to send a positive message to the 48 percent of Britons who voted in 2016 to remain in the EU - many of whom are still unconvinced about Brexit as the March 29, 2019 exit date approaches.
Despite leaving, Britain will continue to make payments to the EU over several decades to settle an exit bill of around 39 billion pounds.
