Providers are not funded directly by the Department. The majority of the Department’s funding is allocated to NHS England, primarily for the commissioning of healthcare services from a range of primary and secondary care providers. National Health Service providers (including NHS trusts and foundation trusts) fund their spending via income received from NHS commissioners in return for the provision of healthcare services to their local population.
Income levels at individual hospitals are not separately reported but consolidated into NHS trust accounts. The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust comprises three hospitals: Princess Alexandra Hospital, St. Margaret's Hospital and Herts and Essex Hospital. Details of income received by this trust can be found in their published accounts, with the latest accounts available via this link:
The following table summarises the total aggregate income levels for all trusts from 2011-12.

In 2011-12 Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital NHS Foundation Trust recorded the highest level of income across all providers. The Department does not hold records on income levels in individual trusts prior to 2011-12.
