Mental Health Services: Greater London

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much funding was allocated to each mental health trust in London by his Department in each year since 1997. (200272)

The information requested is not held centrally.

The Department makes revenue allocations to primary care trusts (PCTs), but not to national health service trusts or mental health trusts. It is for PCTs to determine how to use the funding allocated to them to commission services to meet the health care needs of their local populations.

Commissioners, mainly PCTs, pay NHS trusts to provide services, and the trusts recognise this as income and not as funding.
