East Midlands is not a boundary formally defined by the National Health Service. The majority of NHS capital investment is self-funded by individual NHS providers. In addition, providers can also apply for sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) capital funding.

£608 million of STP capital has been awarded to 29 schemes across the NHS in the Midlands. The full amount of available STP capital funding (£2.9 billion), covering the six-year period from 2017-18 to 2022-23, has now been committed to those successful schemes announced.

In the Spending Review later this year, the Government will consider proposals from the NHS for a multi-year capital plan to support the transformation plans outlined in the Long Term Plan.

The decisions of the Spending Review will in part depend on the overall priorities for future capital across a range of policy areas and identifying where the funds will have the greatest impact for patients.
