This table shows the net operating costs of those PCTs which are geographically the most closely associated with the cities named in the question. These costs do not represent direct expenditure by the Department. PCT expenditure is funded from sums voted by Parliament to the Department. Once those funds are allocated, it is for PCTs to decide locally how the money should be used to address the health needs of their resident populations.
