NHS England allocates funding to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), rather than to individual constituencies. Leeds is currently served by three CCGs – NHS Leeds West CCG, NHS Leeds North CCG and NHS Leeds South and East CCG. However, from April 2018 it is expected that the three Leeds CCG will merge into one. The merger was approved by the Commissioning Committee in October 2016, subject to conditions that the CCGs are in the process of discharging. Over the next few days NHS England expect to receive formal confirmation that those conditions have been met and the merger will proceed.
Following the Autumn Budget’s announcement of an extra £1.6 billion of revenue funding for the National Health Service in 2018-19, NHS England has issued new planning guidance detailing how funding will be distributed in the coming year. The amount of extra funding that will be allocated to NHS Leeds CCG in 2018-19 is £8,677,000 and can be found page 1, column 7 of the document available below:
