Ministers have announced which NHS trusts will receive part of the next tranche of additional capital funding previously announced for accident and emergency services.
Nineteen hospitals will receive part of a £13m pot to help extend their A&E departments to include GP facilities and other streaming models.
The funds have been released from a £100m capital fund that was announced by the chancellor in the spring budget, most of which has now been allocated to 116 hospitals.
The investment will be made in physical infrastructure and cannot be used for day to day spending such as staff pay.
