In July 2016 NHS England laid out its provisional investment plans for specialised services. However, owing to a current court case regarding pre-exposure prophylaxis these decisions are not yet finalised.

As the decisions are still subject to change, Ministers have not yet arranged meetings to discuss the final outcomes.

However Ministers continue to receive and respond to correspondence from a range of correspondents on the provisional investment decisions.
