Respite Care: Staffordshire

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 24 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much funding has been allocated by (a) North Staffordshire, (b) South Staffordshire and (c) Stoke-on-Trent primary care trusts for carer’s respite in (i) 2009-10, (ii) 2010-11 and (iii) 2011-12. (323057)

The information is not held centrally.

The Department does not break down primary care trust (PCT) revenue allocations by policies at either national or local level and there is no weighted capitation formula specific to carers that would allow needs to be accurately identified at the local level. It is therefore for PCTs to decide their priorities for investment locally, taking into account their local circumstances and priorities set out in the NHS Operating Framework.
