This information is not available in the format requested. The vast majority of cancer spend is funded from primary care trust (PCT) baseline allocations. PCTs have local discretion as to how they spend their overall baseline allocations, including in the area of cancer care, to allow commissioning to best reflect the needs of local populations. Budgets for specific disease areas are not identified centrally within baseline allocations.
