The 20 most comparable CCGs to Southampton are based on modelling using the Index of Multiple Deprivation, population registered with practices, age of population, population density, ethnicity and ratio of registered to resident population. Although the 20 CCGs are the most comparable, they do not have exactly the same characteristics and therefore allocations.

The average payment per general practice (GP) registered patient figure for the Southampton CCG area, comparator CCGs and England for the years 2013/14 and 2014/15 is set out in the following table. The 2015/16 figures are not yet available and will be published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) in September.

The figures in the table include all payments made to practices, including those which CCGs made which were funded from wider non-primary care allocations.

NHS Newcastle Gateshead CCG appears in the forward looking table above, but not the backward looking table below, as it was only established on 1 April 2015 following the merger of three predecessor CCGs in that area.
