The Government has dismissed a bleak report into NHS finances and insisted it has spent enough on the health service to make it "sustainable in the long-term".
A Department of Health spokeswoman said:
Pessimistic predictions of this type are nothing new, but we know that the NHS remains stable.
Some parts of the system are under pressure due to an unprecedented rise in demand - which is why we have taken tough decisions to increase the NHS budget by £12.7 billion over this Parliament, and are ensuring the NHS is sustainable in the long-term.
