single--2

What do we know about how the new money is to be spent?

Three northern STPs have been awarded a total of £60m for capital schemes from a fund of £760m, Health and Social Care Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced.

The money is to be invested in pathology, technology and improving efficiency across three sustainability and transformation partnerships in the north: West Yorkshire and Harrogate will get £24.6m; Lancashire and South Cumbria £31m; and Humber, Coast and Vale £7.5m.

West Yorkshire and Harrogate are to spend £2m on pathology, £1.5m in telemedicine for care homes, £15m to expand the ‘scan for safety’ product-to-patient barcode tracking system and will invest £6.1m as part of the Yorkshire imaging collaborative.

Lancashire and South Cumbria will use the funds to create a pathology diagnostic service between Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay FT, East Lancashire Hospitals Trust and Blackpool Teaching Hospitals FT.
