Notes:

1. 2002-03 to 2008-09 are the only years for which information is available for the Wakefield District PCT.

2. The figures are taken from the audited summarisation schedules of Wakefield District PCT and its predecessor organisations. Wakefield District PCT was formed as part of the reconfiguration of PCTs in October 2006, following the merger of Eastern Wakefield PCT and the Wakefield West PCT. The figures provided for 2002-03 to 2005-06 are the sum of equivalent values in these two PCTs.

3. The figures represent the total primary, secondary and other healthcare purchased and provided for the PCT's resident population, with the exception of primary dental and general ophthalmic services since these costs are not directly attributed to PCTs on the basis of a patient's place of residence.

4. 'Other healthcare' as defined in the audited summarisation schedules includes expenditure for NHS trust impairments, plus grants to other bodies for health related capital projects under joint working arrangements.
