Question to the Department of Health and Social Care

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have madeĀ of the distribution of funding received through the Immigration Health Surcharge; and whether the distribution of that funding is linked to specific migration-related impacts for each NHS authority in England.

Answer (Lord O'Shaughnessy)

The Department does not collect this information centrally. NHS England advises that funding allocation formulae include no specific assessment of migration-related impacts, although they do take account of the overall size of the local population.
