The Budget Red Book confirmed that the centre would be based in the Department of Health and Social Care. Hammond added that the government would “abolish the use of PFI and PF2 for future projects”, and the Red Book confirms the move “in light of experience since [that] found the model to be inflexible and overly complex”.
