Question for Department of Health

UIN 12984, tabled on 22 October 2015

Answered on

27 October 2015

The Department is not responsible for the operational delivery of the Success Regime, which is delivered by NHS England and NHS improvement.


The information is not available in the format requested. However, information is available on the transformation funding allocation to establish each of the success regime sites, and the expectation set by NHS England and NHS Improvement to recruit individuals to lead each regime.


Each of the first three sites that are part of the Success Regime has received an initial £700,000 from NHS England's transformation fund for start-up costs. Further funds will be released on a case-by-case basis and allocated in-line with local requirements. The precise make-up of the local teams will vary, but the key central appointments in Success Regime sites will be the programme directors and/or programme chairs. NHS England and NHS Improvement have set the expectation that programme directors will be paid in line with the National Health Service contract for Very Senior Managers unless in exceptional circumstances. The programme chairs are likely to be provided by third party suppliers as part of a wider package of support.
