On Monday 19 July, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Jo Churchill, announced that this roll out is being pushed back. In her letter, she stated that there would not be a set start date for the collection of data until certain criteria are met. If you would like to read her letter in its entirety, please click here.
