In August 2018 we submitted an enhanced proposal for the reconfiguration of hospital services to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in response to his recommendations to us and the advice of the Independent Reconfiguration Panel.

In September 2018 the Secretary of State confirmed that he was pleased with the progress made and requested an update at the end of January 2019.

During the summer the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership supported the national capital funding prioritisation process, agreeing our proposal as their top priority and in December we received confirmation that capital funding of £196.5m had been allocated to support the implementation of the hospital reconfiguration proposals.

This is a copy of the update report we have sent to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
