The department collected information from primary care trusts in September 2011 to understand how the £648 million transfer was progressing and on which services it was being used. The information suggests that the money is being used on a wide range of services. A full breakdown of this can be found in the National Health Service publication The Quarter: Quarter 2, a copy of which has been placed in the Library.
