The Department has not commissioned such a report. In 2014, NHS England, Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) commissioned research from four consultancies to support 11 challenged local health economies with the development and strengthening of their strategic plans. Eastern Cheshire is one of the 11 health economies covered by this research. An overarching summary, ‘Making Local Health Economies Work Better For Patients’, was published by NHS England, Monitor and TDA in December 2014.
