Funding Formula: North Yorkshire/York

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

21. To ask the Secretary of State for Health what effect the new NHS funding formula has had on North Yorkshire and York primary care trusts’ cash allocation for 2009-10. (255415)

The new formula recognises that the needs of the primary care trust (PCT) population have increased due to the combined effects of age, health status and deprivation. This is reflected in the additional funding the PCT will receive, which places North Yorkshire and York PCT in the top 30 per cent. in terms of increased funding. The PCT will receive an increase of £118.6 million or 11.6 per cent. over the next two years.
