Cancer: Northern Region

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what funding (a) Cumbria primary care trust and (b) each other primary care trust in the north of England has been allocated for cancer treatment in 2006-07. (123257)

We do not hold information centrally on levels of local funding allocations to primary care trusts (PCTs) for cancer treatment. However around £3.4 billion was spent on cancer services in 2003-04 and this increased by 12 per cent. each year to around £3.8 billion in 2004-05, and £4.3 billion in 2005-06.

National health service funding is allocated to PCTs to meet the health needs of their local population, who in partnership with strategic health authorities and other local stakeholders, determine how best to use their funds to meet national and local priorities for cancer services.

The following table shows the allocations to PCTs in the north of England for 2006-07.
