I’m trying to understand CCG expenditure on general practice over time. Would it be possible for you to provide this information for any CCGs you represent? I’m looking for as many years as the information is held in a comparable fashion. It would be useful if this was accompanied by a clear explanation of what was considered in this expenditure, and a breakdown of this if possible.
I am looking for any spend that goes to general practice. This might be different things in different CCGs. I am aware that NHS England commissions general practice, but they tell me there is further spend that goes through CCGs – so it’s that which I’m trying to find out more about. That might include things like enhanced services, for example, but might be other elements depending on CCGs.
If you do not hold this information, please let me know who you think I should approach to find it.
The only comparable information that the CCG has is for 13/14 and 14/15. This financial year is not yet closed therefore we would be unable to give that information until the end of May 2016.
I have attached a copy of Note 5 from the annual accounts showing the spend on General Medical Services/Primary Medical Services/Alternative Provider Medical Services and the next tab is the detail that make up the number on Note 5.
