Cornwall set for NHS devolution deal

It is expected that Chancellor George Osborn’s budget will announce a new devolution deal giving NHS Cornwall greater control over its health and care spending. The deal would see Cornwall follow Greater Manchester as the second English region to bring its NHS and council-funded care services together under one budget, controlled by council and local health authorities. This integration of health and social care is central to the Government’s future plans for the NHS.
