Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to ensure consistency in the quality and funding of eating disorders services in different areas of the country in the context of devolution to CCGs.
The funding and provision of health services, including eating disorder services, are the responsibility of local clinical commissioning groups and they have the flexibility to allocate funding according to local need. NHS England and NHS Improvement are working with partners across the health system to support local services and help ensure the funding flows to these services as outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan. NHS England and NHS Improvement will review system plans against expected trajectories, seek assurance on any major divergences and establish recovery plans where needed.
