Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am aware that London borough Leaders have earmarked up to £750,000 funding over the next 3 years in the London Councils budget, to cover the local government contribution to funding a support function for a proposed new, strategic health board. I understand their commitment is subject to finalisation of plans for a new board and agreement of contributions from other partners. My officers and I are actively involved in ongoing discussions with partners about what resources the GLA might be able to contribute to the work of this board.
