The Department is working with the national health service to review the specifications of schemes in Phase 2 of the central procurement process, including the proposed scheme for the Avon, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire area, to ensure that future schemes best meet the needs of the local NHS, and are responsive to the needs of the communities in which they will operate. This exercise is ongoing, and expected to be completed in October. Once this process is complete, and all parties involved in negotiations have been informed of the outcomes, further information will be made available.
