Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the Cancer Transformation Fund, when he plans to publish the provisional allocation of the £29.7 million of capital expenditure classified by NHS England as not yet approved.

Answered by Steve Brine

NHS England is allocating £200 million transformation funding in 2017/18 and 2018/19 to support Cancer Alliances to deliver improvements in faster and earlier diagnosis and quality of life for people living with a cancer diagnosis. Over £72 million was released in 2017/18 to support Cancer Alliances to transform cancer services. A further £9 million went to Greater Manchester to support its Cancer Alliance, as part of a devolution agreement.

For 2018/19, the allocation for each Cancer Alliance is as follows:
