At Spending Review 2020, the New Hospitals Programme received £3.7bn of funding up to 2024/25. At the Autumn Statement, the Government reaffirmed its commitment to the New Hospitals Programme, which includes Leeds General Infirmary.

I have not discussed the specifics of this case with the Secretary of State, though I look forward to discussions with him about the New Hospitals Programme, and wider health policy issues, in the coming weeks and months as part of the Treasury’s ongoing engagement with DHSC on these matters.
