Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley has welcomed the Prime Minister’s response to a question at PMQs by Jeremy Lefroy MP regarding a fairer formula for allocating money to the CCGs that receive the lowest funding.
The Prime Minister said,
“the resources allocated to CCGs reflect the needs of the population, including levels of deprivation and the age profile of the population. Changes have been made to the allocations for 2019-20. The fair share allocations for Staffordshire CCGs, which I am sure he is particularly interested in, have increased; they will see a higher level of growth in their actual budgets over the next five years. That difference will ensure that, over time, funding across the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs becomes fairer.”
“I welcome the recent announcement of the NHS Long Term Plan. This is a historic moment for patients in Staffordshire Moorlands and across our nation which will protect the health service now and for generations to come – ensuring that the NHS is always there for you and your family.”
“I am pleased that the Prime Minister has stated that the fair share allocations for Staffordshire CCGs have increased.”
