To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how much funding was allocated to each clinical commissioning group area in London per head of population since 2010; and if he will make a statement.

Local National Health Service funding allocations per head of population since 2010 are shown in the attached tables.

Allocations were made to primary care trusts (PCTs) until 2012-13 but since 2013-14 have been made to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) excluding public health.

It should be noted that CCGs do not share all the responsibilities of PCTs. In addition to commissioning primary care, PCTs commissioned a higher proportion of specialised services than CCGs do now. PCTs also commissioned public health services, a function which has transferred to local authorities via the public health grant.

Further, not all CCG areas and populations are coterminous with those of the former PCTs.
