The following table shows total revenue allocations made to primary care trusts (PCTs) in the Birmingham area for 2011-12.

PCT 2011-12 total revenue allocations (£ million)
Birmingham East and North 747.3
Heart of Birmingham Teaching 578.4
South Birmingham 650.2

PCT recurrent revenue allocations are not broken down by service or policy area. It is for PCTs to commission services to meet the health care needs of their local populations, taking account of local and national priorities.

PCT allocations for 2012-13 will be announced shortly. This will be the last round of allocations made to PCTs, as, subject to the passage of the Health and Social Care Bill, from 2013-14 the NHS Commissioning Board would be responsible for the allocation of resources to clinical commissioning groups, while the Department would make grants to local authorities for their public health responsibilities.
