Answered By:

London health and care devolution is based on the principle of subsidiarity.  Pilots are being developed and owned at local and sub-regional level.  Discussions have been underway since the autumn and activity is due to commence from April 2016. The London Health Board, which I chair, will have political oversight of the devolution plans as they develop.
