Peter Aldous calls on Government to amalgamate health service regulators

14th November 2017

Peter Aldous calls for a single set of regulators for hospitals and clinical commissioning groups to avoid duplication and redirect funds to the front line.

T4. The James Paget Hospital at Gorleston, which is doing great work under great pressure, has highlighted the fact that it and the clinical commissioning group have two different regulators. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it would be sensible for one body to oversee both organisations, so as to avoid duplication and redirect funds to the front line? [901685]

My hon. Friend makes an important point. We have no plans for legislative changes, but we do want to see closer working between NHS Improvement and NHS England on the ground, so that people working in constituencies and areas such as his get only one set of instructions. We are making good progress.
