NHS Wales: £700m 'black hole' fear as pressures rise
The NHS in Wales could face a £700m black hole in its finances in just three years time according to new research by leading experts.
The health service here is "currently facing the most financially challenging period in its history", according to the Health Foundation think-tank.
The shortfall would be equivalent to more than 10% of what NHS Wales currently spends in an entire year.
It also warns the costs of social care might nearly double by 2030-31.
