To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what impact assessment has been undertaken on (a) the NHS Five Year Forward View, (b) the New Models of Care Programme and (c) the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Devolution deal; and where such assessments are published.
7 July 2015
As discrete programmes of work emerge targeted at delivering aspects of the NHS Five Year Forward View, each of these, including the New Care Models programme, will be subject to normal governance procedures, including requisite impact assessments, and will be robustly and carefully evaluated against the goals of the NHS Five Year Forward View. In doing so, NHS England will be mindful of its statutory duties and those set out in its Mandate.
Similarly, with regard to the Greater Manchester proposals, the usual requirements for assessing the impact of changes will apply for individual elements of the programme.
