Terrible Idea. NHS closes its £50m Innovation fund after only a month

If there is an organisation that should be innovating it’s the NHS! Yet, they have just closed their £50m Innovation Fund after just 1 month saying that [Innovating and improving] is “outside its core business and it can no longer afford to run it because of “unplanned expenditure”.

How can an organisation like the NHS NOT see innovating and improving as their core business?
