The information requested is shown in the following table. The table sets out total National Health Service revenue expenditure since 2010/11 in today’s prices. It is not possible to provide a meaningful data series showing NHS spend on maternity services as the data collected from primary care trusts prior to 2013/14 is not comparable with that collected from clinical commissioning groups in subsequent years.
