CCG faces deficit of £29m


A few years ago, HSJ published a list of PCTs (as they were then) in order of surplus down to deficit, followed a couple of weeks later by a list of PCTs showing the funding per head of population: hardly surprisingly, PCTs (I remember Birmingham and Islington - there were others) who had very large surpluses were also the most highly funded per head. (Let me make t clear: I had no great problem with very deprived areas being funded more highly: just that this higher level of funding should have been invested in care for the population - not hoarded away to provide a surplus). I wonder whether it would be useful if Pulse constructed a similar table - income/head vs surplus/deficit? I have a vague recollection of seeing a table of allocations to CCGs - or it might have been last year's PCTs - per head and noting that Bedfordshire was, IIRC, fourth from the bottom...
