I don't have a record of all the cases on which health issues have been commented on. However in the majority of large housing schemes seen by me,  local authorities will seek contributions to social infrastructure, including health provision through the S106 or CIL system. Such schemes will sometimes include the provision of health facilities on site or contributions to their provision in the locality. The details are usually negotiated between the developer, the local authority and local NHS providers.
