Information on specific allocations through the Elective Recovery Fund to each elective service in England is not held centrally.

As set out in the National Health Service ‘2021/22 priorities and operational planning guidance’, systems are asked to deliver activity levels above set thresholds in order to access this additional funding. This will increase activity including in neurology services for patients affected by Parkinson’s.
