Primary Care Trusts (Funding)

Volume 453: debated on Tuesday 28 November 2006

15. To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether moneys top-sliced from high-performing primary care trusts will be returned in 2007-08. (103781)

Primary care trusts (PCTs) which make a contribution to their strategic health authority (SHA) reserve will be repaid, normally within the three-year allocation cycle, when organisations currently in deficit start producing surpluses. SHAs have been asked to ensure PCTs with the greatest health need are the first to be repaid.
