In November 2017, an agreement on decentralisation of health care and social services for London was announced. The agreement includes commitments on NHS investments and capital reductions, commissioning budgets and payment mechanisms, as well as health and health personnel in London. On 18 September 2014, a referendum on the delegation of power to justice was held in Scotland, asking citizens whether Scotland should be an independent country. [14] With a margin of about 55-45%, people living in Scotland rejected the proposal. [15] On 16 September 2014, the leaders of britain`s three main political parties promised a new decentralisation regime for Scotland in the event of a “no” vote and promised to “change more quickly, more surely and better”[16] and, following this vote and the promises made during the referendum campaign, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced his intention to transfer additional powers to the Scottish government. the nature of which would be determined by the Smith Commission. [17] These powers were then transferred to the Scotland Act 2016. [18] Following the Brexit vote of 23 June 2016, calls were made for further decentralisation,[19] including differences in membership of the European single market for the decentralised territories of the United Kingdom. [20] There are also groups calling for decentralisation or full independence for Occitania, Alsace and Brittany. The agreement provides for a collective agreement between London and National Partners to change the outcomes of health and well-being, inequality and services in London through new ways of working together and the public. It includes the delegation of funding and commissioning powers, additional tax and regulatory powers, licensing and employment support, governance and regulatory changes, joint strategic capital planning, joint strategic workforce planning, involvement of London partners in the development of new payment mechanisms and the full participation of London partners in supplier performance decisions. The Government of Nunavut is currently negotiating a decentralization agreement with the Canadian government.

Nunavut Tunngavik, the Nunavut Inuit organization, is also involved in negotiations to ensure that Inuit interests are represented. In the United Kingdom, a de-elected government was formed following simple majority referendums in Wales and Scotland in September 1997 and in London in May 1998. Between 1998 and 1999, the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales (now Senedd Cymru-Welsh Parliament), the Northern Ireland Assembly and the London Assembly were created by law.
