Trust Funding Allocations

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average allocation of funding for education and training was within NHS trusts in (a) 2005-06 and (b) 2006-07; and if she will make a statement. (108301)

In 2005-06, the Department allocated £3,587 million to the national health service through the multi-professional education and training (MPET) budget. In 2006-07, the Department allocated £3,766 million in the same way.

MPET allocations are made to strategic health authorities (SHAs) rather than directly to NHS trusts. In 2006-07, the SHAs have received the MPET allocation as part of their overall funding allocation and have managed the investment in education and training according to local priorities.
