NHS director sceptical over government's £3.8bn Better Care Fund

NHS England's medical director, Sir Bruce Keogh, has told the House of Commons Health Select Committee that he fears the Better Care Fund, the pooled budget of £3.8bn for the NHS and local authorities, will be wrongly used by councils. “There is a fear that the labels [will] be taken off the money and that it will be used for filling in potholes and other things,” he said.
