New business case approval guidance available

New Business Case guidance available - 14th May 2009

Community Health Partnerships (CHP) welcomes the publication of "New guidance on approving investments in NHS LIFT" by the Department of Health.

This new guidance is the culmination of extensive effort to align approval procedures with the principles behind LIFT and will help PCTs and local authorities to complete a business case for any new project brought forward by an existing LIFTCo.

It is now available on DH website (click here). CHP has, in conjunction with the LIFT community, participated in lengthy and effective consultation on the new guidance over the last 12 months.
