Here’s what you need to know about a massive payout from the National Lottery this week, as the National Health Service (NHS) revealed it was preparing for a record £100m payout for its patients.
The money will go towards “reducing the number of deaths in England and Wales” by “saving lives, reducing hospital visits and treating more people”.
It comes as NHS England said it was aiming to have a record of 717,000 new beds by 2020, with a target of more than 2 million by 2025.
In a statement, the NHS said it would invest £100 million to improve care for “high-risk” patients and “improve the safety of care”.
The statement also said the NHS would be “building on its work in recent years to improve patient safety”.
The NHS said: “We have a long-term plan to ensure that every NHS patient, wherever they are in the country, has access to the highest quality NHS care.”
As part of our work, we will be developing a strategy to improve our safety record and improve the safety and outcomes of our patients, including the NHS.
“The National Lotteries website says it is looking for a total of £100,000 to be donated to the NHS by the end of April.
In January, the lottery, which has been running since 1932, announced it was planning a £100million payout for patients.
A statement said the money would go towards improving the safety record of patients and improving the “safety and outcomes” of their care.
The National Health Services (Nhs) will make £1bn from the payout.
The NHS said that after analysing the data from more than 1,500 tests, it would “provide a more realistic target of reducing the number [of] deaths in the UK by 2020 and by 2025, from 1.8 million deaths to under 700,000″.”
We are currently working with our clinical partners to make sure we have the right equipment and training for the next stage of the operation.
“We will be spending the next 12 months in an advanced phase, working with the NHS to ensure our safety and performance are as good as possible.”
The NHS will also be investing £5.4bn to invest in “a robust network of community-based healthcare services to ensure all patients receive the highest standard of care and quality care”.
“The NHS has invested in a wide range of NHS services to deliver safe, high-quality care, and the NHS has been delivering on that investment,” it said.
The NHS was not able to provide a full statement on the payout from its website.
The lottery is also in the process of awarding a £25m prize for a person to become the first person to die from an infection on the NHS.
This is the first prize awarded by the lottery in the NHS’s 80-year history.
The prize is being handed out to a person who has “a high-risk infection and has no symptoms” and has “made a full recovery”.
The NHP said it had already identified “several” potential winners from the new awards.
One winner has already received £25,000, with another person receiving £50,000.
There will be a further £10,000 prize for the “most successful” person to get the first patient to a hospital within 48 hours.
There are also £1,000 prizes for a doctor or nurse, a pharmacist, an engineer or a computer engineer.
A new prize will be handed out in May to anyone who can “create a system of risk-reduction measures that reduces the number” of people being tested for infections.NHS England said there were no plans to pay the prize for “a small number of exceptional cases”, meaning those with serious conditions.
“In order to protect our NHS and its patients, we are investing £100.4m in research and development to help us to improve the performance of our clinical and operational teams,” it added.
“The funds will be used to improve safety, improve patient outcomes and ensure patient safety at all stages of the process.”
The NHD also announced that it would be using the proceeds from the NHS prize to “build the capacity of NHS trusts to deliver high-level clinical services, including mental health and primary care services, and to deliver new evidence-based and evidence-led health and care policies and programs”.
“This investment will ensure that NHS trusts can deliver the quality and services that our patients expect,” the NHD said.
