2013 NHS transfer directions have been superseded.



The Directions and explanatory note concern the transfer of £859m in the financial year 2013 to 2014 from the NHS to local authorities for social care.

This funding, which was announced as part of the Spending Review and in the Care and Support White paper, must support adult social care services in each authority, which also have a health benefit. The local authority and clinical commissioning groups must agree together how to use the money.

These Directions should be read together with the conditions relating to payments between NHS bodies and local authorities
