Health Services: Lancashire

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 22 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how much money was spent in Lancashire on anti-obesity initiatives in each of the last 10 years; (125673)

(2) how much money was spent in Lancashire on anti-alcohol initiatives in each of the last 10 years;

(3) how much money was spent in Lancashire on anti-smoking initiatives in each of the last 10 years.

Information on spending by national health service organisations on particular areas is not collected centrally. Primary care trusts (PCTs) are responsible for providing health services to meet the needs of their local population, including services to tackle obesity, alcohol misuse and smoking. The 2006-07 and 2007-08 revenue allocations to PCTs separately identify £211 million nationally in 2006-07 and £342 million nationally in 2007-08 to support implementation of the “Choosing Health” White Paper. This funding has been targeted on the most deprived areas to support the delivery of some of the commitments in the “Choosing Health” White Paper. This will enable PCTs to deliver various initiatives including action on diet, activity and obesity, alcohol interventions and NHS stop smoking services. Revenue allocations to commissioning organisations in Lancashire, PCTs and previously health authorities, are shown in the tables.

The tables show the revenue allocations made to PCTs in Lancashire for the two allocations rounds 2006-07 to 2007-08 and 2003-04 to 2005-06.
