The Department of Health has announced that primary care trusts will receive an extra £2.6bn next year to spend on commissioning.
The PCT allocations for 2011/12 means that in total £89bn will go to PCTs and for the first time will include money to support joint working with social care as responsibility and funding for social services for people with learning disabilities is transferred from the NHS to local authorities. The DH said the 3% increase “demonstrates the government’s commitment to protecting health funding in a tough financial climate”.
