Details

The annual report and accounts give an overview of the department’s resources and how it has used them to fulfill its statutory functions during the financial year 2016 to 2017.

The document describes DH’s performance against objectives and includes the Secretary of State’s annual report on the performance of the health service in England.

The Secretary of State may give financial assistance to any NHS foundation trust (FT), including loans, public dividend capital, grants or other payment. The Secretary of State may also guarantee the payment of any amount payable by an FT under an externally financed development agreement. He has similar powers to provide financial assistance to NHS trusts under Schedule 5 of the NHS Act 2006.

‘Financial assistance under section 40 of the National Health Service Act 2006: 2016 to 2017’ sets out the detail of how this power has been exercised in the financial year 2016 to 2017.
