There are concerns about whether health care should be transferred to Peterborough and Cambridgeshire, with warnings that Council members should not be "blinded" with money.

A report on whether the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority – the mayors of the county – should work to increase health care spending in the region is "in the final stages".

The combined authority, which is already the lead authority for transport in the region, intends to adopt additional powers and budgets for health and social care for adults.

It is hoped that taking responsibility for health spending will enable more effective service delivery.

According to a report to the Cambridgeshire Health Board yesterday (Thursday, November 22), a report said: "Summarized public agency partners have a unique opportunity to make public services more seamless, responsive to local needs, more sustainable, and Common solutions deliver results to citizens of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
