Neither the Department nor NHS England hold the requested information.

NHS England allocates funding to clinical commissioning croups (CCGs). Individual CCGs are responsible for commissioning local services, such as patient transport services, based on population need.

It is for local leaders working together with NHS England and NHS Improvement, to make the best use of the funding that has been allocated to them.
