We understand that David Flory CBE, Chief Executive Officer of the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) wrote to the hon. member on 11 December 2014 regarding the relationship between the Northern Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group and Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

With respect to the issues outlined in that letter, we understand that the TDA and NHS England are actively working with local NHS organisations on an ongoing basis to ensure the best outcomes for patients, and that TDA will be involved in the next annual planning round that will commence in the New Year.
