Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 8 February 2019 to Question 218743 on Cancer: Health Services, how the funding arrangement for sustainability and transformation plans (STP) will operate where a Cancer Alliance is aligned with more than one STP or integrated care system.

Cancer Alliances will work with their sustainability and transformation plans/integrated care systems (STP/ICSs) to develop local plans that set out how they will direct funding locally to address the cancer service transformation priorities for their local populations. Where a Cancer Alliance aligns with more than one STP or ICS, the Alliance is responsible for working with all stakeholders to agree the strategy for cancer across the Alliance geography, including allocation of funds for each of the local systems.

The vast majority of Cancer Alliances are already coterminous with one or more sustainability and transformation plans/integrated care systems (STP/ICSs). The NHS Cancer Programme is working closely with regional and Cancer Alliance colleagues in the few areas where STP/ICS are not yet coterminous to carry out robust assessment of the options available. This work is under way and proposed changes will be reviewed and agreed in the coming months.
