It is up to primary care trusts (PCTs) to identify local priorities, with their partners, and to commission services accordingly. Figures on spend by PCTs on weight management programmes have not been collated centrally over the last three years so this information is not available. We have provided new money to PCTs from 2008-09 to take action on obesity as part of the overall allocations to the national health service. Levels of expenditure on weight management programmes will remain a matter for local areas.
