Primary care trusts (PCTs) have been notified that £15 million per annum will be included within the PCTs' general allocation from 2007–08 onwards to help PCTs improve their local arrangements for commissioning and delivering alcohol interventions. PCTs may commission treatment from a range of provides, including voluntary bodies.
