    NHS England has rejected plans to divert funding from poor to wealth areas that would allocate funds based on age and not deprivation levels.

    The poorest areas in England will receive extra money aimed to tackle ill health after NHS bosses rejected plans to divert the resources from there to wealthy areas. This decision means that numerous GP-led Clinical Commissioning Groups in deprived areas will stop seeing their budgets cut from April. Coins

    The board has defied the Department of Health by rejecting plans of making the age of the local population a key factor in the allocation of NHS funding, reports the Guardian.

    Labour MPs have claimed that the move suggested would have led to almost £1bn being moved from poor areas with low life expectancy to wealthier areas where residents live longer.

    Therefore NHS England has chosen to give al 211 CCGs rises of at least the rate of inflation both next year and the year after. Practises serving the most deprived places will receive extra money to help cope with the demand caused by ingrained health problems.

    Under this new funding formula 10% of the total money available for CCGs will be distributed on the basis of which ones are doing the most to tackle the need for treatment.
