Question for Department for Communities and Local Government

UIN 226621, tabled on 6 March 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what analysis of financial risk to Greater Manchester councils has been made during the Manchester NHS devolution negotiations.

11 March 2015

The devolution deal is about greater integration of the money spent locally on health and social care across the city by local authorities and health bodies. It does not affect the allocation of funding to councils in Greater Manchester. Greater integration and joint working has the potential to reduce costs and improve outcomes.
