To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate his Department has made of the reorganisation costs for NHS England resulting from the establishment of new management and commissioning bodies.
7 December 2021
There has been no specific assessment. NHS England and NHS Improvement are providing guidance and support during the abolition of clinical commissioning groups and the establishment of integrated care boards. NHS England and NHS Improvement are managing changes required to adapt software and processes managed by third-party suppliers and we expect these costs to be absorbed within NHS England’s budgets.
