Next day briefing: Levelling Up White Paper

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities published its White Paper, Levelling Up the United Kingdom, setting out how the government intends to spread opportunity more equally across the UK. It provides an economic analysis of the drivers of geographical disparities across the UK and sets out the policy reforms intended to level up 'left behind' regions of the UK. It sets out medium-term ‘missions’ to be achieved collaboratively across government and key stakeholders at a national and local level.

This briefing summarises key elements of the white paper relating to health as well as NHS Providers’ initial analysis of the proposals most relevant to trusts and wider health and social care partners
