NHS Property Services

Question for Department of Health

UIN 108611, tabled on 18 October 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what monitoring was undertaken on whether the funding that was added to the baseline funding allocated to clinical commissioning groups in 2016-17 to meet the effect of the change by NHS Property Services Limited to charge tenants market rents was used for that purpose.

NHS England allocated the additional funding provided by the Department in 2016/17 to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) with an express expectation that CCGs worked with their providers to ensure that the impact of the NHS Property Services charging regime was neutral in 2016/17 and should not be used for any other purpose. NHS Property Services is working with commissioners and its tenants at a local level to ensure that its charges are being paid.
