On 27 February the chief executives of NHS England and NHS Improvement wrote to Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) leaders. They stated the upcoming NHS Delivery Plan will outline the steps NHS England and NHS Improvement will take to help ensure all areas have developed credible implementation plans.

The additional £325 million announced in the Spring Budget will help the STPs with the strongest projects make real progress in improving care for local communities.

This additional resource is solely for use by capital bid projects subject to the usual assurance processes by NHS England and HM Treasury. No decisions have been made regarding the allocation of funds.
