Here is one result of my meeting with Bernard Jenkin – now only remains to keep the longer term funding on the agenda and get it confirmed soon enough to avoid damaging uncertainty.

Further to your meeting with Bernard, I attach a scan of a letter he sent to Cllr Spence after their meeting in Westminster where Bernard raised the CADU issue. Since the sending of this letter, we understand the CADU service should now be restarting, but that this remains only for the immediate future while discussions are ongoing over the long-term funding of the service. Bernard is waiting for a response to this letter and has offered to assist in the discussions between the ECC and the local CCG over funding responsibility after the next financial year, to ensure the service continues uninterrupted.
